Alec Westall

Our member Alexander Frederick Westall (Alex) crossed the bar on the 1st April 2997 and he was 86 years old. Alex was Managing Director of Sir William Reardon Smith Shipping and Chartering Director of Sir William Reardon Smith Line. He worked at Reardon Smith head office Cardiff from a junior until he was called away to join the army in WW2 where he served in North Africa, Crete, and Italy. He returned to the company after the war and in 1967 was appointed Director where he served until the company went into liquidation.

Our sympathy goes to Alex's wife Millie and her family.
