    My grandfather was company secretary to Wm Cooper Ltd, and my dad went on the Basuto as a young man in the early thirties. I was raised on bed time stories about how capable she was.

    Hi,

    I'm following up on leads about Basuto which is at our Museum. From your comments, did your Dad work for Coopers at Widnes or was it when she went ot Manchester?
    regards
    Mike
