Potters, firstly a very warm welcome to you. Secondly you have come to the right place. there will be others on the Site who can give you far better information that I can, and I am sure they will rise to the pleasant task. - For my part I remember sailing with him when he was a very young Master, and the very fine ship's Captain of the Cavendish.

Potters, if you type Roy Southgate into the "search" facility on here, it will throw up all the references to your father - one of which appears here (http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=3132&highlight=Southgate) and bears out what I said about him; i.e. he was one of nature's gentlemen.
