hi john, any pics of watts ships would be great, my email is, [email protected]. home address is tony wilding ,32 hurst grove ramsgate , kent ,ct12 6db, thanks , tony.I made a couple of trips on the Willesden and on the Beckenham,have pictures if you would like to have them, please PM me with your address. It was a very good company to sail with.
Thank you for getting back to me on this. My father must have been on the Beckenham between 1947 when he was 18 and the late 50s (before he went on to Join Union Castle having become an officer). He started off with Watts Watts spending his time 'chipping and painting' the vessel he was on and I know that at one stage he was sailing around the south coast of Australia shipping coal one way and iron ore the other.Simon, what was the time frame your father was on the Beckenham.
