Pictures

Here we have a selection of extra pictures, to supplement those in the print edition of the book.

The occasion of this picture was a court case at which the owner of the landbased pirate South East Sound was being prosecuted under the Wireless Telegraphy Act.

  3. G’day from Perth, Western Oztralia.
    Just finished the book which is unusual for me. It was GREAT! A true insight in to the day to day stuff onboard. I could very faintly listen to Caroline in the 60’s from under my pillow in a little village in West Yorkshire if the weather and cloud conditions were just right. I loved it then and love it now. Gives me the Toms when governments dictate to us all the time and when you guys stick it up then, its another one for the little guys. Good On Ya and ROCK ON !
