Memories of The Docks

By John Davis

He recalls the Fire Boat being employed to extinguish a fire in a canal side warehouse and the force of the water from the hoses smashing down the doors of the premises. Les well remembers the boats carrying raw chocolate coming along the canal and some of the dangerous actions of the local lads.
