We are grateful to Andrew Hill for these 2 photos, taken by his father shortly after Boleh’s arrival from Singapore in September 1950. Andrew read the article about Boleh in May’s edition of PBO, (see our 6 April news item) and recalled seeing her in Salcombe as a child. Later, reviewing the family photo albums, he chanced upon these pictures of Boleh resting up the Bag in Salcombe.
Thinking they might interest the current owners and also add to the records of this unique vessel, Andrew kindly passed them to PBO’s editor who forwarded them on to us. Thank you all round.
