I am hoping to find Gilbert George [GG] Saunders, Old Worcester '51 and Apprentice with Shaw Savill Lines. We sailed together on "Taranaki" 1952, for two voyages. Last heard of in Lyttelton NZ aboard a Shell? tanker, sailing out of Singapore. Any information via this forum would be gratefully received.

I sailed with a Capt. Gilbert Saunders (don't know about the George) on Townsends Ferries later P&O Ferries in the 80's out of Dover. He was quite a big man and also quite a character. He is retired now but still lives in the area I believe.

Pleased to have been of assistance Grifmar. I sailed with Gilbert for several years on the Dover/Calais/Zeebruge service on the "European Trader". I was on her for ten years as AB/QM.

Hi Pat,

Although I have been a member since July 2005 I have only been posting for about one month as my PC broke down as soon as I joined and have only just got back on line.

In that one month I have managed to put three different lots of people in touch with each other. What a great website.
