    hi, my birth mother, Sheila Ann Cooper, was on the Rangitane between June 63 and March 64, as was my adopted father Alistair Rae.
    I have a photo of her with a man called Mick Savage taken in Tahiti. Both have now passed over. I was wondering if you remember a man called Francis Pater Thompson, known as Peter, who is my biological father....
    Any information you may have on either of them will be greatly received as I am trying to find Mr Thompson....
    thank you.
