Hello Marien,

Thank You very much for your interesting account of Canvey life. If you knew my Uncle Frank and Aunty Shiela you must have Known my mum June and her two other brothers Albert and Colvin and of course Nana Saul from 21 The Avenue.

From the sea cadets you may have known my Father John Manly as he was one of the First  junior members of the IYC when Reg and Mari Winters started this group in the late 1940’s .

My Dad wrote of a capsizing of his national 12, losing his trousers just as Reg Tremain sailed past with a boat load of laughing Sea Rangers .

Happy days I think.
