This looks like him:

Merchant Navy Seamen 1835-1941

Last name: VERLANDER
First names: P
Age: 35
Day of birth: -
Month of birth: -
Year of birth: -
Place of birth: LONDON
County/country of birth: LONDON
Card type: -
Discharge number: -
Identity certificate no.: -
Series: BT112
Date range: 1841-1844
Piece number: 81

The initials on the card are actually PW. Card is dated 11/05/43 so age 35 fits the 1808 birth.

I think this is also him:

Merchant Navy Seamen 1835-1941

Last name: VERLANDER
First names: PHILIP
Age: 37
Day of birth: -
Month of birth: -
Year of birth: -
Place of birth: COLCHESTER
County/country of birth: ESSEX
Card type: -
Discharge number: -
Identity certificate no.: -
Series: BT112
Date range: 1841-1844
Piece number: 81

Card is dated 1844 so age again looks about right. Seems the ship he was on was the Avon.

Hope the team has told people how to find these answers.
