This is the most awful news. Donald was the first person I ever met in the Merchant Navy when he was at the top of the gangway when I joined my first ship, Brocklebank Line's Matra in Royal Albert Dock in March 1964. He helped me carry my bags to my cabin. We sailed on 3 subsequent voyages together. We lost touch for a while but I stayed with him in Glasgow about 4 or 5 years ago and my wife and I always talked about accepting his invitation to stay with him on the Isle of Lewis. I am deeply saddened. RIP Donald, you were one of the best.
