    Just my thoughts!
    Cheers
    The lists are from either B&C Review or Clansman.
    I cannot vouch for their accuracy, indeed I have seen my own information incorrectly stated on the site.
    The more I research the company the more discrepancies I find. But that is the nature of the beast. It all happened 40 years and more in the past.
    If you are certain about an inaccuracy then I will publish your findings alongside the recorded info.
    Regards
    Chris

    Interesting list of skippers on her. Oakley, first skipper I sailed with on Windsor Castle. Known to all as Annie Oakley he had a bit of a stoop in his gait, result of injury during WW2. First skipper to log me, but he was a very gentle soul.

    Sowden, First Officer for a while on I think the Pretotia, and H. Charnley, Chief officer on the Windsor for a number of years before being promoted.
    He retired to live in Durban and I did hear he commited suicide.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.

    hi chris. sorry if I got up your nose. I saig I didn't look at the site because it was for officers only. I was not an officer, only an assistant steward, therefore saw no point in looking in again. nif you are listing everyone then I will PM you for a form. alf

    The Good Hope Castle built in 1965 was not my Fathers ship. His was a heavy lift ship.Railway engines were a common cargo on that one.

    It is not for officers only it is for anyone that sailed at any time on ships out of the B&C Group.
    If more officers send in details then there will be more officers.
    There is nothing "only" about an Assistant Steward all people on board worked together to get the ship from one port to another.
