Its just a thought but have you any idea of dates / ships with which to connect Captain Peacocks` seagoing career, it might help members delve into memory banks........

i sailed with a capt.peacock on a gordie tramp ss generton of r.chapman of newcastle.I was the sparks on a trip to the argentine. She had no running water and it had an open wheelhouse ..... that was in sept 1953. I think that his initials were n.w.peacock and he was a gordie as was most of the crew. jack higginson
