Hi I think it was around 2003 he died. sad lose.I remember he had a son named Ian, he was only a nipper when I last saw Errol think it was the Cardigan bay I took over from him. His wife and son had done the voyage/ or the European coast with him ( I think it was late eighties)

I was on the Centaur from 78 to 81 first as junior Eng then returning as third engineer. Remember David Wright 3rd Engineer, Josh Garner (mate), Malcom Lees (captain) Bob Parkes (Lecky), Alan lees (junior lecky), Errol Henley-smith(lecky) Mark Tranfield (3rd Eng). Sadly bob Parkes and Errol are no longer with us. I am currently having all my old seagoing slides and films digitised and will post when done. I ended up marrying a Centaur passenger and settled in Perth WA, and now long been shore based in the Hospital Engineering game.
