Hello all,I have been fascinated by all things maritime since a lad.
My father was a steward,working on Union Castle Line/Safmarine and P&O ships.I,as a 14 year old had a trip on SA Oranje, Capetown to Southampton in December 1968. I have recently discovered whilst researching family records, that an ancestor(aged 15) served with nelson at Trafalgar and was later a captain in the RN.

What was the name of your ancestor who served with Nelson? If you're interested, I can check for any mention in The Times.
