Capt Sir George R Vyvyan

KCMG  “Lord George”

From My Life at Sea by Commander W Caius Crutchley

SS Roman 1870

When we got to Southampton the skipper had to change over to the Briton, a very quick turn round, and I never again had the pleasure of sailing with him.

Our next captain, I am glad to say, is still alive and well, honoured and respected by all who know him.

He is now Sir George R. Vyvyan, K.C.M.G., the late Deputy Master of the Trinity House, and it was my great good fortune to sail with him more than once.
