Hi Ray, I am doing some family history and my Dad was Captain of the Baron Minto around this time (Capt.George Harris). He sadly died suddenly on leave in April 1964. Was he the skipper when you sailed ?Anyone on the baron minto march 1963 or baron belhaven september 1964 or woodford may 1962.
I served my time in Hogarths Baron Herries and Baron GEddes 1952/6Served as apprentice on:
Baron Maclay Sept 1956-May 1957 Capt.W.Warden Ch/Off J.Morrison
Baron Herries June 1957-April 1959 Capt J.Wylie Ch/Off E.Griffiths

Baron Glenconner May 1959-Sept 1960 Capt CW Knoakes Ch/Off I.Mackay
