No problem, spoke to Tom and he remembers the name but says he doesn't think he has any photos but he's going to try to find his old sailing book with all the crew lists in it. It might take him a while, he has been farming in Cornwall for about 20 years. Do you remember an old mate of mine on the Durban, Wally King, he was quartermaster on there for a few runs, he was an old hand who had spent many years on the Pamir under sail
