My great grandfather,Charles Benge,was a tug boat captain in the Port of London according to the September 1939 Census. Would love to be able to trace any photographs or info re himself and the boat. His father had been a waterman and later, a lighterman

Thank you for the most amazing, fascinating afternoon of family history.

Capt Stanley Smith of Sun VIII and XXII was my late father's Uncle. I remember him fondly but now also bravely. I will put his daughter in touch with the website.

Claire thank you for your kind words, glad you found the site interesting.
