1845 merchant seaman record complexion description - completed
« on: Thursday 04 January 18 14:55 GMT (UK) »
Good afternoon and thank you for any help that can be given. 

I have attached an extract from my 4xgreat grandfather's merchant seaman record which describes some of his personal characteristics.  I would be grateful if someone could transcribe the complexion description please?

Thank you,

Nic

Thank you - seems like he had a "red or flushed" complexion!
