Hello

Hi John,

Just thought I would say hello- I'm Nigel Riley and we shared a room with Max Pearson at Southgarth and I think we sailed together - although I cannot remember what ship its was on.

I have stayed at sea - with Souters really - although now, as you know, called OSG.

All the best
Nigel

Harry Pyle

I believe my father in law Henry (Harry) Wilson Pyle was master of the Bamburgh Castle c. early 60's. Anyone remember him?
Belated reply! I was a cadet in Souters in the 60's and Harry Pyle was Chief Officer then. I last met him on a fire fighting course in Leith in 1971 shortly before his tragic sailing.

A true gentleman and well respected Master,
