    Nice looking older style seiner Cyril.The Clyde men would know H.Murray better as "Auld Henry" fae Rothesay.He was with Young Henry on the Ambassador,Plough and then Dawn Carol in later years.No that many years since he passed away.

    Yes Ronnie new them well Auld Hendry used to come up to Lossie every year to go to the retired fishermens bus run
    when he was able to   He stayed with his brother Alex who was also aboard the Lodestar and is still on the go

    his granda and his uncle alex were the same Ronnie   but they were fine lads  Auld Hendrys brother Alex lives not far from me  I often see him down at the harbour  He is Eighty two but still likes to have a good banter with the other retired fishermen

    Cannae remember "Auld Henry" being anything other than an awfae canny man Cyril,but there again I never knew him in his prime !! Young Henry was all right as well even if he could loose his rag now and again...he wasnae the worst by a long wey.
