My Dad in the early 1960's

By Andy Gilbert

A couple of photos of my Dad, Frank Gilbert in the early 1960's. The first was taken in 1961, when he'd just gone back ashore after a stint on the Meeching. He was working at the Harbour Watchhouse and he's seen here on his NSU 'Quickly'. this was replaced soon after by a Lambretta.

The second photo would be a few years later and shows him as skipper of the Meeching, with the tug's Mate, Sally Flowers, at the wheel.
