Taking pride of place on my patio is the ships bell.

Given to me by the new Greek owners of the vessel in Leith docks on Jan 24th 1986.....I carried the thing home with me, on the train, all the way back to Torbay.

Didn't half get some funny looks on the way!!

The Tillerman called into Plymouth on her way down to the Medi, where she was to see out her days bunkering fishing fleets I believe.

Lovely to see Derek and nice to know its in Torbay.

Must admit I know the feeling having once found in a junk shop a Union Castle chamberpot which I carried through the streets of Bath

I think many who sailed on her fell in love with her!! ... especially on the West Coast run!

It was a sad day when we finally handed the keys over in Leith docks and left, case in one hand, bell in the other!!

As an add-on to my post re Leith docks ... the skipper who was with me when the Tilly was sold was John Browning, a chemical skipper who I gather had been a naughty boy so was put on the Tilly for punishment!
I believe he came from around Salisbury .... but sadly I recently heard that he had been killed in an accident at sea, caught between 2 containers in rough weather.

A great chap was John .. we had some laughs whilst in Leith docks!
