Captain Frank Gilbert

Having mentioned my father a few times, here's a pic, taken in his garden in 1974. It was traditional for the Newhaven tug skippers to wear just two rings instead of their full entitlement of four, though later skippers went for the full monty and a scrambled egg cap!

You certainly did. Sealink News did a good write-up on Meeching. Alas, I've lost the copy of the mag and the photos that they gave to my father at the time. If anyone's got the mag and could scan the article, it would be great.
