    Published December 2020

    Author Geoffrey Watson

    A Day In The Docks is a lively account of author’s years working at Tower Wharf in Northfleet, Kent – across the Thames from Tilbury Docks. Although working on the administrative side, Watson had close contact with cargoes, captains and crews, and welcomed opportunities to go onboard the visiting vessels. He also appreciated being part of a tight-knit team of dock workers, in which bonds were formed through heavy drinking and ribald banter. Among the anecdotes about high-jinks of the time, Watson is observant of the hard lives lived by many of the visiting seafarers.
