Any one who sailed with Blue Funnel may remember Griff Pritchard, ( Pritch ) Griff passed away last Thursday at Bangor Hospital aged 68, he had been unwell for some time and he suffered a heart attack in hospital while being treated for his many other ailments, he sailed on the Blu Flu boats for 20 years between 1958 - 1978, as an AB, and like myself ended up on the OCL container ships after the demise of the cargo ships, he was quite a character and will be sadly missed, his funeral was last Tuesday which I attended together with six others who had sailed with him. R.I.P Pritch. stan
