I was very interested to read details of my father in the Union-Castle Shipmates website and enclose a photo of him in his cabin in one of the passenger/cargo fleet.

Here are a few copies of old pictures that I have cherished.

Best regards

Robin Armstrong

Probably Captain Armstrong's command, the Algerine class minesweeper, H.M.S. Cockatrice.
