I'm trying to find information on a fishing boat Wildora that was purchased by Paynes Marine Transport in the 1950-1960 period. Appreciate any help that you can give

Hi Trevor, do you have any 1978 Sheerness flood pictures I can use for the Sheerness Times Guardian? John Nurden. email

Trevor - thanks for the superb site. I lived at 58 Maple Street (was born there!) in the Gallagher household. We were there from 1937 (when my parents moved in) until 1997(when my sister Rosemary who then owned the house, sadly died suddenly). I left the island in 1967 to join Kent Police. Still passionate about the island. Regards, Derek Gallagher

I am enjoying looking at your photos. Thanks. I lived at Westminster as a child, then Sheerness, 39 Maple St if memory serves. I went first to Bluetown and then Delamark Rd. school. I regularly hiked all over Sheppey. i remember the floods of 1953, and watched the then new lifting span bridge being built. At low tide, I used to walk under the old bridge to study its design.

The light railway closed just before my family moved to Sheppey. I remember playing in the derelict shunting yards between Bluetown and Queenboro'. I believe the light railway had a goods service into the dockyard, because the tracks ran at a shallow angle across the road near Sheerness pier - a trap for the unwary cyclist!

Many thanks for refreshing old memories, and best wishes for you future efforts!

You certainly do deserve it, Trev. Absolutely love your site and the memories it brings back to me.

Absolutely deserved - I have lost count of the times I have sent a link to fellow researchers on the Island - all have been amazed at the amount of material on the site - Well done Trevor.
