Hi all I just want to thank Ships Nostalgia for helping me find my Father after 40 years,I posted some time back asking if anyone knew of the whereabouts of Derek Wilcockson,I got a reply from a gentleman called Lennox who supplied an address;and Bingo after 20 odd years of active searching I had the right address.
I have now met my Father my Grandmother and numerous other members of my family that I did not even know existed.I am going to my Grandmothers 90th birthday this friday!!! So a big thankyou Ships Nostalgia

Congratulations on finding your family! A great result

Buy granny a large G&T and send the tab to Tmac1720!

(PS: John Cassels - you are getting SN mixed up with eBay - if you want six-legged elephants they are in the same category as hen's teeth and rocking horse ****). ;)

Regards,

Hi thedelboy

I am sure your Father will already be aware of this but there is a very active HMS Ganges Association that has many TROGS in its ranks - they have an excellent website.
