Frank "Yorky" Scott

I'm wondering if anyone out there knew my Dad? He was called Frank Scott and he worked for Fyffes from 1962-1969. In this time he worked on the Camito,Tucurinca, Tilapa, Telde, Turrialba, Chirripo and Chuscal. He passed away last July and I have been going through his things and have found many photos of him on board ship along with his Seamns Record Book. He worked on these ships long before I was born and I would really like to hear from anyone who may have known him,
Thank you,

Rebecca, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
We have an active group of ex E&F men as members and chances are you will be hearing from those who knew your late Father before long.
