Good Evening everyone!!
I'm a Merchant Seaman working for P&O at the moment, and have been at sea since 1977.
I was clearing out my mother in law's garage the other week when I came across her late husbands Discharge book,Seamans card & Officers union membership book.
We used to have some good yarns about life at sea etc,& I remember him saying he'd finished his career with Stag Line...
His name was John Reid Groves(Taffy) and he died (approx) 1992.
Wondered if any one sailed with/ remembered him & had any good memories?

Welcome aboard from East Yorskhire.
Quite a few Stag Line lads in the crew so they may remember him.
Have a good trip.
