blue funnel

Hello
I just wondered if anyone can remember a Derek Quail, I know he served on blue funnel ships, he was telling me about the pilgrim ships ? and that he went to H.M.S. Conway, I don' know when or what ships he was on, I hope to find out more from him in the next week or so, just thought it would be nice when i see him to say do you remember so and so .
thank you for any help in advance.
Chris reeves

It's likely he served on "Gunung Djati", look her up in Google or search the Blue Funnel thread on this site.

You're quite right. Tyndareus survived until 9/9/60 when she was broken up in Hong Kong. He could have served in the last years of Tyndareus or first runs of Gunung Djati ..... earlest age =16 (as Middy) + 48 = 64 today.
