TOM BROWN -1-

Tom BROWN comes from Caister, near Yarmouth, Norfolk and he talks, not only about his life aboard the herring drifters, his father lost at sea, his own life and work, wartime, ship & shore language, the Rules of Road at sea, boxing the compass, as well as entering Portsmouth harbour, but also his present-day interest in going to folk clubs, singing the old songs, music-hall and the "blue" ones - and he also talks about Harry Cox and Sam Larner - recorded by Peter Kennedy, Devon 1978 133Brown,Tom.JPG
