Sorry for the tardiness of the reply,the only other Tyne Tees Captain I knew was called Right or more likely Wright,he relieved Captain Fisher a couple of times he rejoiced under the nickname of Seldom,he liked dressing like a destroyer Captain,white silk muffler and binocs round his neck and such,he was much given to shouting lots of engine telegraph orders,as I recal Captain Fisher had a Tyne Pilots ticket so it would be about twenty minutes from entering the Piers at Tynemouth to ringing finish with engines at the Gateshead quay,Seldom took about two hours for the same journey.
