Ian McKinnon

Hello everyone and especially ex staff of Union Castle Line. I was a Radio Officer on the Transvaal Castle/Capetown/Windsor/Rothesay from 1962 until 1968. I then joined IBM UK, married a Kiwi and moved to New Zealand in 1982. My last job was as Assoc. Prof. of Compurer Studies at the University of Technology. I have recently retired.
