My Dad was away at sea from a very young age. All i can remember doing was looking after my brothers and sisters being it my duty to help my mum while dad was away at the fishing grounds. It was only by God's good grace i did not lose him to the sea as my mother, being a strong women, would not let him sail so soon after coming home on a ship that was then lost. From then i tried anything i could to protect the fishermen from Hull and having learned to stand up myself i then did so for them. Whether they liked it or not.
