I retired in 2011 after 45 years at sea, spending the last 17 years as a Captain with P&O, Princess Cruises and Cunard Line.
In 2007 appointed Commodore Cunard Line (Senior Captain of the Fleet). I served my final 6 years in command of R.M.S Queen Mary 2, carrying up to 3000 passengers and 1200 crew members on voyages throughout the world.
Both my sons were educated at Princethorpe College and the youngest was a Teaching Assistant 2012/13.
I am delighted to have been invited to the Board of Trustees and look forward to continuing my association with the Princethorpe Foundation.
