As an ex dockmaster in Liverpool, I'm sure you know my mate, retired a few years ago as Alfred Dockmaster, Bernie Dillon.(known to all as Matt)
Bernie and I were shipmates on several Blue Funnel ships, and there were a few more ex China men based at Alfred, Trevor Bode and John Bird, and Billy Morris to name three.
I spent many happy hours in Bernie's office alongside the North lock, reliving our memories, until the security situation caused the Dock Board to restrict access to the locks.
