Enclosed are some photographs which may be of interest to Sea Breezes readers.
They are of my late brother, Clive Downes who served with Shaw Savill Line from training on the Conway to Captain. I served in the Royal Air Force and took the photograph of the Cymric when my brother called into Aden in 1964/65.
I have been very interested in ships and purchase Sea Breezes monthly. I have full admiration for all merchant mariners and their jobs at sea. I know I look back at not knowing how my brother survived being away from his family for such long voyages to Australia and New Zealand. I would like to find out if there’s any way I can discover which voyages my brother may have made and if there’s any way of acquiring the ship’s log.
