Sorry I have only found this recentlly. He was a great captain and pilot, I served with him on the Bennevis and Bencruachan 1966- 1970. He was an exeptional Captain, As he was a pilot out in Singapore for along time, I remember him in the Rejang River one late evening requestioning a pilot to sail as we had completed loading - The answer was NO -you cannot sail at night, but he did with the pilot flaber ghasted on the bridge as we only had a war time radar on board and an old Armour Brown gyro. I have many more stories about him. Great man.Hi
Ken Hardie was my husband uncle. A very kind man and a gentleman.
Unfortunately he passed away in 1996, if I recall correctly just prior to his 81 birthday.
We now live in the house that he built and have an attic full of Ben Line Memrobila.
