    Docked in Cardiff around May 60. Mate Shanghaied me ashore , started at the Cottage in St Mary's St., and then found ourelves in the Sandringham hotel. Met her on the Mon., proposed Sat., Stayed at sea for another 3 years about and joined the Royal Mail working out of Park St., and Westgate st., until Penarth road opened it's office and worked out of there on H.G.V.'s. Good crowd of lads and finished up in Bristol to help run the transport H.G.V's
    My W. R. wanted to move over to be near her eldest brother so here we are ,good and truly anchored in Somerset. So one more year and it'll be 60years married.
    .. Wish now I had taken my cook's ticket, but you can't think of everything.


    and buried in Somerset
