I could not believe my luck, I had to drop Ruth at Seaford so she could help at work, leaving me to go to the beach on a very windy day to find it was high tide. The sea was incredibly powerful and I had to be careful to keep the lens pointing away from the wind so as to avoid spray messing it up. The serated breakwater looked like a computer memory chip with the water flowing over it...

Sadly, he passed away on Saturday 29 August 2009. He had dementia and it reduced him to a shadow of what he was. His trade was as a carpenter and he was old school, very few power tools, mostly hand tools. I hope to keep some of them but I would struggle to do them justice!

We`d seen a photocopy of this photo but not the original so thanks to Mumsie for finding it for us. It is taken from behind our old house, 3 Brightland Road, and shows it totally destroyed. It was sad to find that Henrietta Hellebon aged 46, was killed in the blast.
