Hi Derek,

Very sad to hear of the passing of Greg Murray.
Always remember him trying, vainly, to teach me to play the guitar when I was 3/0 on the "Redcar".
One of life's gentlemen.

A sad day, sailed with him many times. His rendition of "A white sports coat and a pink carnation" would bring tears to my eyes, mainly because it was so aweful...Great Captain and Shipmate. RIP Gregor.

I will post some pictures of him shortly.......

RIP Gregor Murray

So sorry to hear of his passing. I have several happy memories of the trips I did with him. One was when he was on a diet and ordered "Six chips please" with his main course.
A fine captain.

Ah yes Lloyd. That was "six chips please" in a heavy Scottish brogue. I'm smiling as I type.

(Please excuse my small hijack - Lloyd, check out "Did you ever have boot laces" in Engine Room, there is a pic of you there.....)

I only heard him render that once. Once was enough. However, "Down in the West Texas town of El Paso" still runs through my head during drinking parties. Thanks, Chief Engineer Sammy Sanvid . . .

My first Captain, first Cadetship trip, Australia to China. MV Reynolds.

So sorry to hear about Greg. Never forget him practicing golf on the monkey island. The day came when he lost his grip and flying over the wall came a club.
Splash. Great Skipper.
