John S Low

While attending HTHNS in the late 50s I was passed several books originating from John. I never met him and do not recall exactly who passed on the books initially to my mother, (a friend or relative!). His signature is on most of the books but the only one stating a ship’s name is that of the “City of Durham”, c/o City Line, Glasgow. This in a copy of ‘Principles for Second Mates’ published 1944. I recollect some connection with Freetown. Does anyone remember him, sailed with him? Any info. greatly appreciated.

If my memory is correct I sailed with a John Lowe on the City of Canberra in the early 1970s. He was First Officer and had a ghastly old sextant that had been presented to a relative of his by survivors of the Titanic, on which he was a deck officer, after he took charge of one of the boats.

The John in question had a family name of Low. Any Titanic connection I think I would have been aware of. I actually was at school at the same time as a John Lowe who could possibly be a c/o in the 70s. Not a streamlined figure.
