My mum remembers that her father, Philip Sharer, captained this vessel. I don't know of any dates unfortunately bit if anyone out there crewed with him and could tell me anything about any journeys, places or anything about him I'd be really grateful. I have memories as a kid spending time round his house and all the seeing souvenirs he collected from his travels. He also had a Shell flag desk ornament that i used to love raising and lowering. I never got the chance to know him as well as I'd have liked to and would've loved to have heard him tell of his time at sea. Any information... good or bad (!) I'd love to hear it.
