A Love for the ocean

by Kay Griffiths
(New South Wales, Australia)

My father Alfred "Alf" Henry Griffiths, age 17 arrived in Halifax, Canada aboard the Regina, from the port of Liverpool, England in April 1928

My dad was a quiet man, I do not know very much about his young life and nothing about his family

Alf was a crew member on Merchant ships in Canada (Vancouver) along with his good mate Arthur, in the early thirties

Dad arrived in Australia toward the late thirties and continued his life at sea serving aboard many Australian Merchant ships, until shortly before his passing in 1976

I would be very interested in any information about my dad, if that were possable
