Jim Ferrier

Jim Ferrier sadly 'crossed the bar' at the end of December. Jim was a keen Bank Line man who often wrote fondly of his time as 2/0 on the Ettrickbank, among others. He was a contributor to this forum.

We were schoolmates at Woolverstone, where Jim was a bugler. We both went into the Bankline and did memorable trips on the Liberty Maplebank, and years later we were both working in the Port of Felixstowe.

My sincere condolences to JIm's family and friends.

So sorry to read about Jim's death....was with him on the old Clydebank for 2 yrs back in 55/57 (he an App, me R/O)
He was generally, & affectionately, known as 'Ferret' back then. RIP old friend!
