The Rev Bill McCrae is working at the Seafarers Centre in Southampton and recently replied to my mail to him as follows:-
It was a lovely surprise to receive your e-mail and to look at all the
information you have taken the trouble to compile. I was at Greenhythe from
1977 until it closed.
Yes, I remember you visiting me at the centre and catching-up with your
news. From time-to-time other people call on me as well and its always good
to see them. This is just a brief note that I've asked my son-in-law to send
to you as I'm off to Haiti with Richard Drax of the BBC South to visit a
Haitian seafarer who lost his legs in a tragic accident at Poole harbor 6
months ago. So, I would value your prayers for that visit.
Warmest greetings to you and yours and please convey my kindest regards to
anyone else who may be in touch with you. God bless and keep you.

Its good to know that the Sky-Pilot is still in good fettle and fighting fit. Bill was always good for a cheery face on a cold wet Monday morning. Good luck with your visit, I'm sure we will all be thinking of you.
