Merchant Navy shipmates reunite after 40 years!

Posted on Tuesday 3rd January 2012

Tom* had been in the Merchant Navy from 1969 to 1973 and was keen to find two of his old shipmates.

Both of Tom's shipmates originally came from Liverpool and knowing their dates of birth and a rough idea of their surnames a GRO Birth Index search was carried out to try and confirm their details.

Once their details had been confirmed a search was performed using Peopletracer's Electoral Roll data and one of the shipmates, Chris*, was located and contacted.

Tom and Chris are going to be meeting up in the new year, no doubt to share stories from their days in the Navy!
