Comments + Vindi details Hi,Just browsing when I came across your site. I signed up with the Merchant Navy at the Glasgow "pool" in early 1963.I received my Travel Warrant etc.,etc. and was due to join Vindicatrix on 1st April 1963. I had met a girl at the beginning of 1963 and as it had started to get serious I decided to send Travel Warrant etc.,back to the Captain? of the Vindicatrix. I have always wondered what my life would have been like if I had joined all you guys,however it wasnt to be. My father was seafairing (1920/30s) and he was really disappointed. Anyway...lifes like that.sometimes we make decisions which can be good or bad. I have managed to travel quite a bit over the years ( I'm 71 now) but when I saw the great B & W photos of the boys in the 1950/60s I must say I thought..."if only". God Bless Good Luck,be Happy. Regards, Douglas

Comments + Vindi details Sir...I am doing some research for my book. Its about a Salford soldier who was killed at Gallipoli in 1915. He sailed to Gallipoli on the SS IONIC (White Star Line). Would any of your members have any in depth history on the said ship please? The soldier is Cpl William (Billy) Frankland UNSWORTH who served with the 9th Bn Lancashire Fusiliers. I would be particularly interested in the summer of 1915. Kind Regards. G.
