My dad Ted Thompson

My dad Ted Thompson on the right

Back in the late 1930s to the end of the war, my dad Ted Thompson on the right hand side, with two local friends. They were all Merchant seaman together. I wonder if anyone could recognise the other two?

  • Hi Dave.
    I just wondered if you are related to a late Leslie Thompson? Only he was a Tilbury man, and he came from a big family there.Only he used to work in a lot of the local pubs in Tilbury and sometimes all so help out as a ‘pot man’.

  • Sandra,

    Your Dad by any chance – did he have a brother Gilbert, who was also in the Merchant Navy, that lived in Ottowa Road and was Married to Dawcus? It’s a long shot, but worth a go?
