Gordon Castle was my great uncle. He was an internee at Stanley Civilian Prison Camp during the Second World War, then emigrated to Vancouver, Canada. For part of his working career, he was a purser on the Empress ships. Then he moved into a government position, possibly in finance. 

I am writing a creative non-fiction book about him and my great-aunt Sally Castle (née Staley), focusing upon their experiences at Stanley. 

Any help is gratefully appreciated.
