Discovered in the archives recently

Drunky nunky bless him, in a moment of clarity and goodness, sorted out some family papers and pics for allatsea to catalogue and digitise. Amongst them this picture of grandad allatsea on his dad’s side.

A wonderful pic and no mistake your honour. Matelot William John Allatsea taken circa 1916 when he was 18 years old or thereabouts. Allatsea is busting with pride.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
