Shell mex shell welder crew

Hi, I’m looking for a crew member named William Moore. He was on the shell mex shellwelder in the 1950s. The vessel used to dock at aldrington basin in Sussex. I had information that William relocated from Sussex to jersey to live? Does anyone remember him? Could anyone tell me anything? Many Thanks, Rachel

Thanks for the correction. I have very little information on this person so thank you for the name correction. Hoping someone may know / have known him? Rachel
