MY GRANDFATHER’S SHIPS AND THEIR OWNERS
Jan Fletcher

Jan’s Grandfather lived in Hooe and served on many ships during his lifetime, ending up working on the Cable ships at Turnchapel. Some of his berths were commercial, some privately owned and each a different experience. This was due not only to the voyage or type of ship but to the varied character of their owners.

Followed by PVH AGM

SUBMARINE A7
HMS A7 was an A class submarine built for the Royal Navy by Vickers in 1902. She sank with all hands in Whitsand Bay in 1914 during a training exercise. Efforts to salvage her failed and she now lies at a depth of 37m. The wreck is a protected site and diving on her requires a special license from the MoD.
