Does anyone remember Tom McCuthen? I might has spelt his surname wrong.
Anyway I sailed with Tom on the Crispin back in 1960,he was Chief Officer,
master was Captain Norman Sharpe. Last saw Tom in Late 1962 when he was
Chief Officer on the Hubert. I believe Tom finally got his own command but latter had a heart attack and I think had to give up his sea going career.
Great guy and a good shipmate. Another clue,he had a daughter called Liz and
wife called Molly. Couldn't believe he had a heart attack as he was a big/fit
strapping Scottish lad. Any news about him would be appreciated
Thanks. Caffj
