A good family friend from Austrailia, Jozy Sutton sent me this picture of Auntie Mildred and my older sister Sarah.

I came across this photo of me while sorting some files out. I still have that fishing rod.

Penberth Fishing FleetWhen I was younger, this was the fishing fleet at Penberth. If this picture was taken today there would only be about 4 full time fishermen.

Mum and Sarah looking very much younger.

Dad and a great big pollackThis picture was sent by Robert George(he took the picture), he and my dad used to fish together a bit when they were in their teens.
