    Hi
    My Father was born in London April 1931 and joined the British Tanker company as a cadet in 1947 completing his 2nd Mate Certificate in 1951. Dad then joined Union Castle and finished up as 2nd Officer on the Kenya Castle in 1958. Around this time he met my mother and settled down to married life in South Africa. Dad loved his time at sea and in retirement moved down to Cape Town.
