I olso did not know they were at sea,they are my cousins,sadly Alistair died over a year ago.Hello Dave,
Small world mate. I also live in Caol about 200m past where John and Alistair live. I see them around almost daily, although I wouldn't say I was a personal friend. I was not aware that they had both been to sea.
I take it that you were at Gravesend together. I can get a message to them if you want. I am not sure if they are on the Internet.
