Friends on the Empress of Canada 1961/62

Jimmy Wilson from the Isle of Man and Taff are trying to get hold of their old pals, Peter Cahill and Bob (last name unknown). We all sailed on the Empress of Canada together. Bob went to sea in the engine room and later switched and became a messman on the Canada and later a winger. He and his wife and children lived in Aigberth. His brother-in-law who once studied to be a priest also sailed with us on the Canada. Jimmy Wilson, Taff and Peter also worked on the Isle of Man boats. It would be great to hear from them or of them.
