Hello Mike,

My Dad was 3rd engineer on the Tormes on crew list for 30/12/71, he was William Turner. Dad passed away in March 1983 when he was 47. I'm trying to put together his maritime history. How did you come to find the crew lists?

Dear Pam,

The Crew Lists came from the Company Magazine On Shore and Afloat, which I had in my possession. I hoped and am still hoping other readers will add more.
Cheers
Mike
