One of the old T.H.V. pilot cutter skippers was an Eric Pankhurst. I believe he sailed in this ship during the war, probably as 3rd, or Xtra 3rd mate.
I seem to remember some mention being made about the Boom Defence being installed in Aden. Hugh Ferguson.

Hugh,

Do you remember the Harbour Master /Ch.Pilot of Penang Capt. Len MacLeod in your BF days. Subsequently ended up in the Hong Kong/Macao ferries in the early/mid 70s. I relieved him as Master of an Ore/Oil Carrier in 78. He was in his early 70s then.
