September 4

I will be a member of the crew when Humber sails the ten miles from Lowestoft to the Great Yarmouth Festival on Friday 6th September 2013.  She will accompany  the Royal Navy MTB 102. I have been three times before on that vessel and will sleep on her over three nights  in my normal cabin.  I have only slept two nights in the Wardroom and am never shy in telling visitors, “I don’t know weather I slept on Churchill’s bunk, or was it Eisenhowers?” When the two great men were on her as they inspected the beaches before ‘D’ Day.   Humber is the older sister of our  boat, RASC Garth, which is just about to leave its moorings in Sandwich under the control of its new skipper, Tom Lash, Chairman.
