Hello from me

29th November 2012, 09:10
Hi. My Grandfather was and Engineer in the Merchant Navy for most of his working life. He joined his first ship in 1908 and was invalided out in about 1948 (he slipped on some potato peelings and injured his knee).
He wrote a short biography, which includes crewing a tug boat at the Galipoli landings in World War One, ship wrecks, and dodging German submarines in World War Two.
I am currently trying to put this biography in to a book.

As part of this I am hoping to get some stories, and pictures of the ships he was on.
