With regards to Cruise News in the October 2015 issue of Sea Breezes.
While my personal dealings with John were very limited, I agree entirely with the sentiments expressed in your obituary. He was not only very knowledgeable, but a charming man.
The only thing that slightly surprised me in your tribute was the fact that there was no reference to what in my mind was his seminal work - The North Atlantic Run - The Only Way to Cross published in 1972. This preceded Liners to the Sun. I always considered him a North Atlantic man first and foremost.
I have been reading Sea Breezes for over 50 years. It is still a great read.
