On the back row, left to right,  number 2 is “Gassy” Edwards – so named as he was in charge of the Gas works and lived on site.  No. 4 is Johnny Turner who served on the Britannia as Mast Headsman – I believe that he was a nephew of Captain Turner, the professional skipper of the King’s boat, Britannia.   No. 6 is old Charles Sainty who ran the Fingringhoe ferry, grandfather of Arthur and Peter Sainty of our generation – both good footballers and also helmsmen of WOD “Ranger”, Next to old Charles Sainty, is Darcy Percival.   No.9 is Charlie Sainty – father of Arthur and Peter, and son of old Charles Sainty.
