Captain Reginald Featherstone of Newhaven

Hi Everyone
In my family tree I have a Reginald Featherstone who was married to an Annie C. White (Nance as she was known) in Newhaven in 1916 and this is where they both lived. Nance ran a confectioners shop at 4 Bridge Street. Reginald was apparently the youngest ferry captain working out of Newhaven on the Dieppe route. I was trying to find more detail about him, i.e. where he was born and, perhaps a picture of him at work aboard his ferry. Am I asking too much I wonder but perhaps one of you lovely people might know something I don't. So, in anticipation, I say thank you.
Mobo

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Mobo.
I'm sure someone in the crew will be able to point you in the right direction.
Meanwhile explore the ship and enjoy the voyage.
