I sent him a photocopy of Constantine's Passenger Accommodation booklet.
He was apparently delighted. He says he was Master for 20 years with P&O "but they did not reach the pleasure of Constantine"
Despite sailing with Anchor Line, British Tanker Co, T & J Harrison, Macandrews, Port Line my uncle always seemed to have fond memories of his time with Constantine. Even when he left the sea his Chief Engineer now Superintendent would visit him when in Glasgow.
I attach a couple of photos of Lochwood, one a company postcard the other showing Lochwood in Govan Drydocks, Glasgow.
