Sam McLeod

Clansman - June 1979

Sam McLeod one of the best chief engineers I sailed with never frightened to get his hands dirty…….John Baines

He was great to have on the cadet training units - always keen to broaden the minds of cadets…….. Tony White

I sailed with Sad Sam. He was interested in our Anderson Cameron valve gear on Clan Urquhart. I think he was a motor man that wanted to see what real engineers did on up and downers! After he retired Ithink he worked for Hick and Hargreaves and he came to ICI after I retired to do some work on our plant equipment…….Ken Burns

I think he was feared in some quarters..... I witnessed him being quite nasty to some engineers.....Bob Herron
