In Reply to: looking for intformation on my father by Irene Aldrich of 1912

Hi. I think I found your dad on 9 ship lists from 1942 to 1950. He certainly traveled the world. He's listed as Floyd A. Aldrich or Floyd Allen Aldrich, "Chief Mate" right below the "Master" of the ship, and was "Quartermaster" on some of his earlier voyages. On one list in 1946 he says he had been at service for 10 years, in 1944 he said 7.5 years, although in 1949 & 1950 he said 11 years. Some places he traveled to were: Las Piedras, Venezuela; Bremerhaven, Germany; Newport, Wales; Casablanca, Morocco; Curacao, Dutch West Indies; and Yokohama; Japan.

If this your dad, he was born in 1918 and this may be him in 1930:
