    Very disheartening when we try and assist , and also after sending Email to Original Poster, that there is no reply! At times (Not always ) one feels that we are wasting our time here!??
    But having said that there could be other reasons ! Lets hope all is well.
    Thank You

    Vernon, you tried and can do no more than that.

    Your efforts are always sincere and I think well appreciated by the recipient.
    There are times when thing fail for no reason, maybe this is one such occasion.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

They married in East Ham in 1956. Their names were Michael Magee and Daphne Bluck
    Tracy its a first for me hun i have never known Mum and Dad at sea, Passed like ships in the night LITERALLY Terry.

    Hi Doc
    Unfortunately I haven’t received an email from you, otherwise I would have replied

    That’s a shame Terry, I would have loved to hear of someone who remembers them , I was born across the river from you in Wallasey ��

    It would have been mid 50’s possibly 56

    I was just looking through the gallery (unfortunately I couldn’t see either of them) when one ship in particular caught my attention and reminded me that dad also sailed on the REINA DEL MAR, would have been possibly 53-54
