Hughes Bolckow Figurehead

The figurehead was purchased by Mark Bamford ( Son of JCB founder Joe). It started to fall to bits when it was put on to a low loader!!

Lost Figurehead

Hi,
Very Interesting, can you tell us more about this, did you happen to witness this. I was aboard two of his ships Tamamima and Windsor Castle on the Fal a few years ago, pity I did not know of the connection at that time.
