i was a boatman from about 63 till 68 then i went to sea
in Shoreham.
You must have been there when I was the Sparks on "Sir William Walker" July to November '64 - I inherited the job from completing my 6 months as a trainee then the chief sparks went on extended leave and I stayed on. Had a good few sessions in the "Rising Sun" by the lock gates. A few years later - August 69 - I joined the RNR up the other end of the harbour and pleased to see that the colliers were still going to the power station.
