SHEERNESS DOCKYARD
BY
BERT SHARDLOW.
(Copied from the manuscript by Colin Penney.)
VERY OLD FOLK TALES OF SHEPPEY.
 
These short tit-bits of Sheppey Tales were collected by L.G. (Algy) Welland (School master at the Sheerness Technical School) and Les Hogan. They were recorded onto 6 cassettes and sold at the Minster Abbey Church, all proceeds went to the Church Funds.
These are/were ? sold in the Church Shop.
 
The “ Memory Jerkers “ below are to assist me in finding certain required articles.
In my next Web Page revision I will possibly have sound to some (all !! <B.G>)  of the short articles below .
A few reports are duplicated (please excuse any spelling mistakes).
The solution to every problem is a.) time , or  b.) another problem.
