Mariner’s license found, possibly discarded from a robbery

General Cargo Ship

ONE OF our public spirited readers has contacted the Euro Weekly News to ask for our help in trying to contact the owner of a number of photographs, many from the Second World War and a Mariner’s license in the name of Captain Weat Rex William Cordery.

It appears that Captain Cordery was the captain of at least two vessels, one being the ‘Lord Nelson’ which sailed out of Southampton and the other being ‘Star Clipper’ which sailed out of Malaga to the Caribbean during the 1980’s.

Clearly there could be considerable personal importance to these items and we would be delighted if Captain Cordery or anyone close to him could contact us and we will put them in touch with the reader who has found what she believes to be the discarded results of some form of robbery.
