I believe your Dad was Duncan Campbell, and I remember sailing with him, I think on one or the other of the Seatrain ships.
Good Chief Steward and a good shipmate. Am I right in saying he passed away on one of the sulphur boats - Nordic Louisiana or Nordic Texas?

Yes that was my Dad .. I know nothing about what ship he was on only that he was buried at sea 120 miles off Bermuda point ? Trying to gather anything I can ... Thank You for all replies . It is very heartwarming .

The name Duncan Campbell rings a bell but not sure if we ever sailed together.
Maybe in one of the Denholm magazines I had occasion to search through
We are now on a campsite in the middle of France at the moment. When we
get home will have a look through and get back.
