    Me,me thats a rare aul photie that ane, for'ard deck full like that. You can easy see that this photie is time capsuled, you dinna see samson posts like that nowadays, and they dinna wear gear like that either, what you see in the photie are the aul style smocks, up ower yir heid. The day, its zipped up jackets, wi' a storm flap ower the zip. I jist wish, some fowk  wid comment wi better knowledge.

    thats modern oilskins they have on there, the latest style come wi, a hood,,
    before that we had the open necked doper, and a sou, wester,
    just after the hooded oilskin came the piece de resistance the trooser suit, the jackets then still had to be pulled ower yer heid,
    but eventually along came the std buttons /or zips,
    ive used them all, and would rather have a jacket with a zip or buttons any day, instead of haulin a cold wet smelly doper over yer heid first thing on a monday mornin   ,
