    Default info

    Hello Jock,
    Firstly welcome to this great site amte,here you will no doubt find a lot of info and good stories realating to the Sea!
    So sit back relax and enjoy@
    I wonder if this is the person you are seeking as it sort of ties up with the dates mentioned,as his DOB is 1937 that would have made him about 17 or so at that time you speak of!
    Born in Brighton,which i think is part of Hove Council?? Not sure! haha!
    Anyway this is just a link to his Seamans Pouch,but possibly the NA may have other info on him???
    Cheers and thanks for joining us !
