Dad Working On The Docks

A Memory of Birkenhead

My dad, Billy Sinnett, worked on the docks for years when we were small. They all had a nickname, dad's was Crazy Horse or Chief. I remember him coming home from work carrying a dockers hook as they called it and he hung it up in the cupboard under the stairs.
