Merchant Navy Manifest, hard to read note

Postby wecanbeheroes » Mon May 18, 2020 4:02 pm

I recently found a Merchant Navy Manifest on Ancestry, that has my Uncle John listed. On the manifest is a handwritten note, I've deciphered some of it but can anyone help fill in some blanks for me?

I have: ???..."that the above crew has been inspected" ???

Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.

The missing bit from Devonliz’s transcription is ‘that the above crew’. (i.e. replaces the ellipsis)
Well done Liz :D
