Peter Wallis

Bit of a long shot as I've posted this before but you never know who has joined since?

I am seeking anyone who may have known my brother Peter Wallis (Wally) who passed away in 1976.

Pete was educated at the Royal Hospital School Holbrook and after getting into a spot of trouble went to the National Nautical School at Portishead (Formidable) I believe sometime around 1962-3 and went to sea on a trip around the world in 1964. Unfortunately both my parents are long dead and I was only 11 when he died so have only scant memory of his time at sea, but I do know he served in the RFA on the Tidepool in 1968-69 and I believe also on the Green Rover. I also remember that he served for a short while on the British Rail Sealink Isle of Wight Ferries.

I do have a vague memory of my Mother saying he sailed on the "Malcolm" which I think may actually been the Clan Line MV Clan Malcolm, I also for some reason believe he served with Union Castle Line and possibly another line as he went to Japan on a cargo liner or tramp?

He served on deck as an AB. I would be interested in hearing from anyone he may have a memory of him.

Many thanks
