  • I think this was Michael Hill. The original Charles Hill had a son also called Charles.
    Looks like Michael would have been born maybe during the 40’s, perhaps great-grandson of the second Charles.
    I worked in the drawing office of Charles Hill in the early seventies.

    Ed: Many thanks, Malc, for your help with the identification. John B

  • I believe Mr Hill had the same christian name as his father – Charles. The year was 1960.
    I also believe the shipyard was in Bristol.

    Ed: Many thanks, David, for clarifying the son’s name. John B
