John McPhee

Hi Guys,

Did anyone sail with a John McPhee on the P&O Strathnaver or the Anchor Line Egidia. John Is my Father he tells of some remarkable stories smuggling etc India Bombay.
He is in his early 80s and would love to her from anyone who remembers him from the Merchant Navy.

Smile Welcome

Stephen,

A warm welcome to SN from Anglesey.
I'm sure that you will thoroughly enjoy your membership.
There a quite a few ex P&O members here and hopefully, someone may recognise your Dad's name.
Good luck!

Welcome to the site from the North of England Stephen.

Very best wishes to your father - you will have to show him how to use your computer so he can take a good look round himself.

I hope you manage to make contact with some of his old friends.

Regards,

Brian
