Hi, Mike,

My own Ellerman connections are tenuous, but I can add the information that Captain AHG Jones died in late May or early June 1969. He had been Master of City of Port Elizabeth (and numerous others) and an Ellerman man all his life, starting as a Cadet in 1916.

He died peacefully at home, whilst my wife and I were away on honeymoon. He was a friend of my parents-in-law - had been at our wedding - and was a very decent egg.

Hope this might help your records.

Dear Holland 25,

Have you any idea when Clarence Challinor was Chief Engineer in Ellermans.
My earliest Crew Lists are dated 25 June 1968 and I cannot find his name in there. Sorry!
Cheers

I would think he would have been approaching retirement in the late 50s early 60s thanks for looking.
