My dad was cap­tain of that boat

Let's Talk - - POSTBAG - Mr R FROST Felixs­towe, Suf­folk

I re­fer to the pic­ture ( July, Suf­folk edi­tion) on page 76. I was on that boat as my dad was the cap­tain from the 1950s to 1963.

She went on to the south-west area and was seen there be­fore she was bro­ken up. I was on her from 1950s to 1962. I was a boy then and in 1959 as I got older, I took the wheel. I went on her from the age of six to 14, as I helped my dad af­ter school, dur­ing hol­i­days and at week­ends.

I had a very good time. I did like the boats and I re­mem­ber her well.

I would also like to thank Char­lotte Philcox for men­tion­ing Felixs­towe gar­dens which is a re­ally nice part of the town where you can sit and look at the docks.

I also liked the ar­ti­cle about Watch with Mother, Andy Pandy, Muf­fin the Mule, the Flow­er­pot Men, Rag­tag and Bob­tail and the Wood­en­tops.
