Mr. Karl Clissett

I regret to inform you that our shipmate Karl Crossed the Bar on 6th May 2022 as a result of a heart attack. He served at sea between 1952 and 1963. His first ship being the S.S. Hartismere which he joined in June 1952 and his last the S.S. Glenddoch signing off in August 1963.

Karl joined the Association in 1996 and was one of the nicest men you would hope to meet. He lived in Barry but stayed with the National MNA (Wales) when the Barry Branch was formed. He was a regular attendee at our meetings and events.

It was Karl’s wish that there be no funeral or wake and this will be respected by the family and his shipmates. Our thoughts are with his son Karl and the rest of the family.
