JAMES FOX GRAINGER 1

THE MAN ON THE LEFT IS MY GRANDFATHER,
JAMES FOX GRAINGER,
I NEVER KNEW HIM, HE DIED BEFORE I WAS BORN.
HE WAS A FOUYBOATMAN IN HARTLEPOOL,
WAS IN THE NAVY IN WW1,
COULD SPEAK 5 LANGUAGES; HELPFUL TO TALK TO FOREIGN SHIP CAPTAINS.
ABOVE HE IS ON BOARD SHIP, THEY ARE PRETENDING TO WATER A PLANT IN A BUCKET WITH THE HOSE.
ON EMPIRE DAY, WHEN THE REST OF THE STREET HAD THE UNION JACKS UP.
HE PUT UP THE RUSSIAN FLAG.
THE SEA IS IN MY BLOOD.
BEACH BUOY.
