Any crew of SARACEN 1972

2nd September 2009, 13:03
Ahoy there. I am the daughter of Capt Angus MacDougall ex Shaw Savill and Crusader shipping 1950's-1975.
I need to contact someone that remembers the voyage of the 'Saracen' that transported an elephant from Los Angeles to Auckland in Dec 1972.
Dad was then C/O.
As a child, i was known to Dads crew as "Red legs", anyone remembering that will know why !!!
I still have many happy memories of Dad coming home with his crew to our house in Auckland and would love to hear from anyone that may remember that too.
I would also like to contact John Welsh the Chairman of the NZ S.S. Society, the current email address i have for him is not valid.
Thanking you.
Fiona MacDougall

Thank you so much John,
Tom Hoy gave me that same email address yesterday but it comes back to tell me it is not a valid address. John Welch has emailed me since so i can only keep trying to get through.
