Apologies for not posting earlier re "King George" whaling ship:  my 6 x Grandfather Capt Wm BRIDEKIRK was at various times on this whaling ship (as Capt. at one stage).  I'd be grateful to hear not only of Muster Lists but further details re her loss (John ?).
Unfortunately I've not 'picked up' the directions to NA from Paul either,
Grateful for any detail, with regards

Can anyone help please ?  Replies to John please.

I've already pointed him in the direction of the help leaflets for
merchant seamen &c. at the NA and NMM.
