  • They were my grandparents (my mum was one of their daughters).
    I have very fond memories of Gampy (John) taking me down to the docks in Dover and being amazed at the goods trains going along the road.
    I also remember my brothers going on a fishing trip with Bert Reid who I think used to use his fishing boat as a support vessel. I was too young.
    Abilio Couto gave Gampy his Rolex watch after one of his crossings and I still have it.
    Thank you for the photo. I haven’t seen a picture of Granny is decades.
