PHILIP POWER (Capt, retired) 19/3/27 – 29/11/12


Some sad news that has just been brought to my attention, for anyone who may remember Captain Phil Power.

I regret to announce that Phil passed away  on 29th November, in hospital near Aylesbury.  He had spent the last several months living with his daughter in that area due to failing health.

Phil was the last remaining Master of P & A Campbells White Funnel Fleet and long time resident of Cogan, Penarth.  Phil will be truly, deeply missed by his family and friends.
