I can scan and e-mail to you if you would like?

Hi All,
Have been away for a while.I'm on about The Alexander Towing Co.My G/Dad was Captain on the "Bramley Moore" before,during and just after WW2.I know he signed his Employment Agreement 26th,June 1926, 6 pound 6 shillings a week.10% bonus on all ships when he was in Command,plus 1 weeks holiday a year.Most of the records were destroyed when the Offices burnt out during the blitzes.Low and behold the 1911 Census comes out and here he is Master on the "Waterloo".He has written the Census form for all the crew and himself.The 1901 Cesus shows him as a Frieght Clerk in Bootle Liverpool.So how in 10 years would he get from a Freight Clerk to Master of the Waterloo.Have had some explanations starting as Cook and working his was through the ranks.I am also trying to get photos of the "Waterloo" of which I have none.The "Bramley Moore" I have two one of her steaming on the Mesey by herself but quite small,reckon its him behind the canvas Bridge.The other one was from Carol of Reflections.The "BM" is stern Tug on the Mauretania going between docks.Any help would be more than appreciated.Best Regards Ken B
