John Hobley


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 National company.

I am now a Fellow of the Institute of Refrigeration.
