I wonder if any readers can help me understand my Grandfather’s Masters “ticket”.
On a trip to the UK in 2017, I got, from the National Archives, the attached information.
I’m not sure what the letters stand for, but I assume that MHT stands for Master Home Trade, but what is CHT stand for? He, and two of his brothers, were masters with Geo Gibson and in the late 20s my Father a bosun with the same company.
There were not too many options for highland boys other than the sea.
Many thanks in advance.
