Thank you skipper, I do remember it was a Charringtons house that opened early mornings.

Tom Hough Snr was labour master in 1954, Harry Dove was The Surrey Dock foreman he had two sons Terry and Tony I think. They also had what must have been the smallest tug afloat her name was the Bogie and with the amount of craft in the dock she was hard pushed to move anything. Was the pub at the top of the stairs the Town of Ramsgate or maybe the China Boy its all so long ago now, I forget.

I was a first year boy off afloat with Bob Bishop, he sent me ashore for a midday Evening Standard I was told of various wind-ups sky hooks etc, now I was told to get a Midday Evening Standard, thinking it was a wind-up I refused unfortunatly Bob never had a sense of humour he reported me to Harry Dove, I had to go to the city for a rucking for refusing to run the errand.

The outside tug look like she is left on a spring and long lead with the wheel hard out to keep her afloat. bit of a bleeder if you had to get back aboard on a roaring ebb! Orient lighterage did not want you nicking any of their sheets did they?!

Always warm and snug in the winter, that used to be a hard skull ashore on the ebb did'nt it?

Keith I can still smell Bob Bishop the roadsmen's tobacco in that hut.

I think this Whitehairs Wapping roads know as the Junks. The tugs would be the Weno and the Regent both of which were still in service when I joined the Company (known as Rat Lighterage) in the second year of my apprenticship in 1954. Whitehairs tugs had an intertwined red GQ (Galley Quay)on the funnel while Clements and Knowling had a red CK.

I believe it was discussed on the previous gallery, but I would be interested to hear any details regarding the mooring arrangement of the two Clements tugs in this photo.
