Hi ...I'm sure that athe engineer on the sea trial was a Mr. George mclauchlan...could b mistaken but I kw for a fact he often went on sea trials really a good engineer ..and like ur Dad he came back loaded lol...so maybe! he knew ur Father unfortunately he has since passed away, but like you it would b really something to find photos and even more info.. George ( known as Iain ) was like a second Dad to me ...as my Dad had died years before...hope u find what ur looking for and good luck !!!
