John R. Watson
SPECIAL CREW FEATURE: John R. Watson
With thanks to Uisdean Robertson for the following:
Capt John R Watson was for a long time Master on the Stornoway Cargo Boat “Lochdunvegan”. In this photograph he is on the 1964 Aberdeen built car ferry “Clansman” I would say berthed st Armadale Pier Isle of Skye.I presume that he was relieving on that vessel.
Capt David Watson did not stay very long with Calmac, he came to the company shortly before the three Aberdeen built ferries came into the fleet, if I remember he started as second mate in the cargo boats, he then served as Chief Officer on the car ferry “Columba”, later served as Master on the Cargo boat “Lochbroom” before leaving MacBraynes to work on North Sea Ferries.
