Captain Bernard Kilner Berry.

A friend here informs me his grandfather Captain B K Berry was with Royal Mail Lines and ended RM commodore and captain of RMS Andes.
Anyone on SN sailed with Capt Berry?

Captain B K Berry with Royal Mail Lines

Good evening R651400;

In reply to your post enquiring of Captain Berry.
He retired to South Wexford for some time and lived in a small cottage just North of Wexford. A million miles away from the Andes, that he spoke of from time to time.
My father (also a ship's Master, In "ISL") used to meet up with him at least twice a week for a coffee and chat in Wexford town. They enjoyed each others company.
This could have been approximately 1964-1970 if my memory serves me well.
We visited his house on occasion, he lived alone and had a cat or two for company.
Always a gentleman, quite spry and fit, always well dressed and a good conversationalist / observer.
Your post is a "blast from the past". - I would have been 10-16 years old at the time.

I have a photograph of a Royal Mail Master on board a ship at Tilbury, who I believe is Captain B K Berry. Would anyone be able to confirm that it actually is Captain Berry? Can forward if recognition is possible.

Good Day Graham.
I knew Capt Berry just after he retired - I was a teenager at the time in the late '60's and lived near him.
He met with my own father regularly for coffee.
If you would care to forward the photo I can take a look. [email protected]
