Robert Mckane Aitken and the Loch Ard

August 01, 2009

Dear Sir,

Having visited Port Campbell several years ago, and visited the Loch Ard I became interested because I had heard my Grandparents talk about the Loch line. There was a book at the Motel where we stayed, with some details about the ship, and the owners names were Curry & Aitken. My Grandparents name was Robert Aitken, and I know Grandfathers' Father was involved with stevedoring, his name was Robert Mckane Aitken. I'm hoping you will be able to help me with my search, I would be most apprciative of your help.

Sincerely yours
Janice Blaxter. 


Thank you for your mail, firstly both the ship and her line are spelt Loch and not Lock, a small point but when searching for details on both it will more likely bring up more detail if the spelling is right.
