Captain Graham Galloway

My dad was a capt for Corys - definitely on the Corstar among others. He became a River Pilot at Blyth in 1962 after he came home from a long trip and I was a baby and didn’t recognise him.

I have just had a look in my discharge book and the Master of the Corbrae in 1957 was Galloway.

I cant make out any initial.I was the Radio Officer at the grand old age of 19. I spent about 6 weeks in the summer between June and August,it was a nice break from deep sea,even if it was on the wrong side of the country,I lived in Manchester.

If it is your father my memory of him was that he enjoyed his grub and he used to make sure that we fed well,bacon and egg pie was a favourite,and he didnt call it guiche lorraine.

Another memory is one trip we did round to Barry,the East coast Northerners considered it going foreign. On the return he went in close to the North coast of Devon to pick a place for his planned holiday.

I did not sail with your dad, but I was radio officer on Corburn for a brief period in 1956. We had a dodgy time when we broke down off The Longships reef off Cornwall in an onshore gale. Fortunately the engine room fixed the issue, but only minutes from a wreck. Those Cory colliers were snug little craft, but - fully loaded - we did not see much of the deck in bad weather.
