Great Grandfather on Leith Merchant Navy Ship during WW1

1918

About this memory

As well as being a trawler skipper my Great Grandad (front row, left) was part of the merchant navy in the First and Second World Wars. In the Second World War he was a shipping pilot for the Firth of Forth and was responsible for piloting ships coming in to the Firth and avoiding the mines laid by the British to protect the coast.
