Hi there gfrobson!

I was 2/R/O on Westmorland to New Zealand in 1975. There are a couple of Westmorland photos in my gallery:

A decade or so before you, Geoff but, on the off-chance, would you or any of your readers who sailed with P & O remember John Hibbert, a R/O from Manchester, who would have gone to sea in the late 1960s? By that time I was working ashore for Marconi on the Tyne but I later heard that John (the son of a neighbour) had joined a Federal Line ship as trainee R/O. Lost all contact thereafter but would like to hear how he got on.
