I am sorry to hear of the death of Capt "Kit" Carson. As a sparks I did not attend Blythe Street, I trained at Hardcastle Street, but Capt Carson took us for boat work every Thursday afternoon at Clarendon Dock; or in adverse weather we would go around to Blythe Street to learn some basic navigation.
He was a fine man and a smile was never far from his face.

Really saddened to hear this. My father took mates and masters at Belfast in the early 70's. He always spoke about the great support that he got from Captain Hugh Carson. My father started in the Foc'sle and said that the ticket process would have been very hard without Capt Carson's support and advice. May he Rest in Peace.
