I have an autobiography by Capt. Taylor which I'm considering donating to any member who maybe interested in his very extensive account of his 44 years at sea aboard no fewer than 66 ships.
Commencing as a deck boy in 1939 and retiring as a master in 1983 The book is a paperback in quite reasonable condition and runs to 600 pages. Members who had sailed with him would be favoured.
The main shipping companies he served in were Shell tankers and Rowbothams. His first ship as master was the Shell Varicella in 1969.
An extraordinary career to say the least!

Bruce Price may be a contender for your donation. He is a member on here with the name of "price". He was an AB himself and finished up master with Rowbothams. I wouldn't know if he sailed with Capt. Taylor though.
