The person is Capt Reekie who sadly passed away in 2001 or 2002 he was a well known person in his home area of the EAST NEUK

What a fantastic photograph, posts like this are what ships nostalgia should be all about. I sailed with Capt Reekie at the end of his sea going life. To see him as a young man is very moving. He was part of a sea going generation who experienced things us younger seafarers could never imagine.
