    From what little I know that sounds like Dad, he was stopped at aged 18 on his motorbike by the IoM police, when asked why it didnít have a horn he apparently replied - itís noisy enough without one - he was fined by the magistrates! Thanks for the story Ken

    A great reason to keep looking in,
    much can be like waiting for a bus -
    nothing for what seems an age, then
    all comes at once.
    Fingers crossed for more.

    Hello Ken Cain,
    I remember your father, Stan. He was on Edinburgh Castle with me in about 1964 or 1965.
    He had a finisherís medal for the Isle of Man TT.
    He also had a recording of motor bikes racing round the TT course.
    He was mischevious!
    We used to wait till we came off watch at midnight and the romantic couples were on deck in the tropical moonlight
    Then he would play the sound track at full blast and have everyone looking for motorbikes racing past the ship in the dark, in the middle of the Atlantic!
    Nice to be reminded of an old shipmate.
    Regards,
    Ken Burns
