Sorley O'Toole - Did you know my dad?

21st July 2008, 18:46

My name is Theresa O'Toole and I was wondering if any of you older sailors knew my dad Sorley. He sailed with the Belfast based Headline Shipping Company for many years and then went to BP and finished his career with Sealink. He passed away at sea in 1981 aged 56. Any information, stories or photographs would be greatfully acknowledged.

Thank You,

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Theresa.
Plenty of crew sailed with the same companies as your Dad so lets hope some remember him.
Meanwhile find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.
