Peter Jackson

This photo was taken on the final voyage of Bloemfontein Castle.

Peter Jackson was 3rd Officer and is behind the gentleman in civilian clothes

I can find no other entries for Peter in the Crew Lists although I believe he went on to serve as 2nd Officer on Mail Ships until he left the company.

Received from his wife Katie on 3rd August 2018

Thank you for your invitation  to Pursers reunion.

As you probably know Peter has battled with Parkinsons for over 30 years

It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that he  passed away peacefully on the 7th July. We were fortunate to be able to care for him at home until his passing.

Peter loved life and with great dignity fought very hard to stay with us and he celebrated his 85th birthday this year so he did well.

With kind regards,
