His seafaring career started when he was quite young, for at the age of nine he worked
on the fishing luggers which left Hastings to meet the herring shoals in the North Sea
and the mackerel in the Irish Sea. When a young man he became a waterman, and with
his late brother, Richard, hew was undefeated in local rowing competitions for 14 years.

In 1898 he came to Bexhill and was one of the crew of the late Earl De La Warr's yacht,
'Firefly', on which he cruised round the north west coast of Scotland. Later he sailed with a
son of the late Mr. Daniel Mayer on a cruise round the Isle of Wight, and he subsequently
won renown as the winner of many of the sailing races round the 'Royal Sovereign' lightship,
in which he piloted his sailing boat 'Albatross'. During the war (he) enlisted in the coast
watching service and in his later years he was employed at the Central Station as an outside
porter. Bexhill Observer, 1937, courtesy of Lynn Brailsford, great-great-granddaugther.
