Hi Leslie, nice to hear from you. I've passed this message onto my mum Michelle, she's not sure about your name, were you known as Les?
She's very interested in locating Alan Woodrow, of Great Yarmouth, Annette Clarke of Great Yarmouth and a Alan Abernethy of North Shields! Have you crossed paths with any of the above?
Sadly my grandad John Patterson passed away 2 years ago, he would have loved catching up with his old ship mates!
Kind regards Amy.
