On leaving PWSTS I joined Cunard on the QE2 with them
flying me out to New York to join her on my very first trip.
I came back to Dover Technical College after 2 yrs sea time to obtain C&G.
Sharing a caravan with some old friends I met at the PWSTS. I spent more
sea time before eventually leaving the QE2 and setting up home in her home
port of Southampton (the QE2 was the only ship I was on for my whole sea
time) on leaving I started a career ashore in Refrigeration and Air
Conditioning as an engineer and later moved into the wholesale and
distributor side which is still what I am doing to this day with a
I am now a Fellow of the Institute of Refrigeration.
