Rest Easy Sir.

Thanks for the link Mr Chips, sounds like he had a heck of a time in the 'Andrew'.

99 isn't too bad an innings  ;)

A True Gent. I served on the Tiger (after conversion) and was born in Ashton, two things in common . Don't think I will live to 99 and never made Captian,  just a Cook, that's life. R.I.P. Safe Seas.

Sorry to disappoint everyone, but William Frank Niemann Gregory-Smith was born in Ashton upon Mersey, the news article is wrong. Still, he was a great man. RIP.

Cheers Vanessa,

I normally do a quick check  - but I didn't on that one.

Dad was Thomas Gregory Smith - Mum  was Helena Peel Dawson.
