MV Reedwarbler 375 grt M P Taylor Leith at Bridlington August 1967. In the days when Brid attracted the odd commercial vessel. One of the 2 RAF launches in the foreground that were stationed at Brid to serve the bombing range off Hornsea.

Would be nice to see some more from Bridlington.
My only coaster sightings recorded from there were two on 3 July 1966, the Dutch AFIENA (1962) and elderly German ZUKUNFT (1940).
I was indentured to Mr. Butlin at the time as a kitchen slave at Filey but must have found a hole under the wire fence ....
Cheers, George

Just prior to this I'd taken a berthed view of the GALILA in the same vicinity .... joining the catalogue of lost or missing negatives and prints!! See her at: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=2254
