  • Ah, Brocklebanks. Worked on all their ships that visited London 1965 until their demise in the `80s securing cargo. First in the Albert Dock when a rigger for T F Maltby then at Coubro Scruttons when Brocklebanks transferred to Tilbury.
    Captain Ackerly the shore superintendent, nice fella. Workmate riggers the Bouchereau brothers who worked in Tilbury Dock for many years. Good old days.
