|Repro ID: H5780|
|Description: Bobby first entered the docks in July 1953 after completing his National Service. He first worked at the West India Docks at number 5 sector. Many men from his family, including his father and brother, worked in number 6 sector, so he obtained a transfer to join them. He later moved to the Regent's Canal where he had to endure the 'call-on' whatever the weather.|
