This is a longshot to all you P&0 retired staff. Do you recall a guy called Chris Goodall who retired in the mid 1960's. I believe he was a purser and had been at sea all his life. He lived in South London and sailed to/from Tilbury. He may have been on Stratheden and Chusan among many others. If you have any information which might help 'fit his picture' I'd appreciate it.

Greetings Peter and welcome to SN. Enjoy the site and all it has to offer. Sailed as an engineer with P&O but only on passenger ships. Bon voyage.

For those interested, there is a P&O reunion aboard Oceana in September this year for a 2 day cruise. I for one hope to meet up with old crew mates who may in turn know where others are. David

Anyone remember John Noakes? He was my father and served at officer level on at least the below ships in the late 1960's. Would love to here from anyone who knew him and have lads of cool photos to share from his time at P&O.
