Charles Drought

I very much regret to inform members that Charles Drought, Senior Third Engineer of the ATLANTIC CONVEYOR, died of cancer in a Liverpool hospital on Easter Monday.

My condolences to the family and friends .
I sailed with Charles for a brief time on the Mahseer and have just finished reading his book on the Falklands .
Sadly missed by all who knew him .
I will pass on the news to others who knew him but are not on this site .

I never met Charles Drought but heard of him through Philthechill and Pat McCartan. I will pass on the sad news to Pat.
There are a couple of photos posted by Phil on SN that include Charles when serving on Brocklebank's Makrana.

Sorry to hear that Charles has crossed the bar. I had never met him but felt that I knew him well after reading his book "N.P. The Loss of the Atlantic Conveyor" published by Countyvise.

My condolences to family and friends. Sorry to learn of his crossing the bar.Sailed with him deepsea on the Matra in 64 (Tony Selman was also there) then again in 71 when handing her over to Greek buyers, also deepsea with him in 74 on the Manipur,a real gentleman in my experience and we had very enjoyable chats at the reunion in the Wirral coming on four years ago. RIP Charlie.
