Hi Guys,
Did a few trips on the Ashington, before and after the windsail. Mainly with Captain Joe Johnson and laughing Bill Gibson.
Also went down to R.S.A. during the miner's strike with Capt Pirie, Mate was Duncan Mc Callum. George Todd was the donkeyman and Ron Dobie Bosun. I remember going to Dunston staithes, we must have been one of the last to load there in 1980.
