Regarding A J Smythe’s informative letter ‘Mystery Model Solved’ in the May 2015 issue of Sea Breezes, I wonder if he or any other reader has answers regarding P&O’s early history.
I am trying to get a picture or plan for P&O’s Norna, a sail auxiliary ship of similar vintage to the William Fawcett. I have details of her construction and some voyage details as my great grandfather John Mintorn Vaughan (times two) her 4th engineer died at Mumbai, (Bombay in those days) on her maiden voyage.
Does P&O have a list of masters going back to those years and when was their current cap badge introduced?
