Hi Everybody,

Had a good look through the various threads in the Cunard section - couldn't find anything about the Countess.

My brother, Steve Kerley served on her from about 1985 until June 1989 when he had an unfortunate accident in Barbados whilst waiting to join the ship on a crew rotation. Steve died 3 years ago from complications caused by his accident (which had left him paralysed).

If there is anyone out there who served on the Countess and remembers Steve, it would be great to hear from you. Any stories/pictures would be great.

Yes I knew Steve very well. Visited him at home in Poole several times after the accident. Certainly was a tragedy. He and I shared the same birthday. Sorry to hear of his passing. I hope he did not suffer too long.
I was a 1st Officer - deck - on the Countess.
