Edward Shreeve, Coastguard - a Memory of Winterton-on-Sea.

Eddy Shreeve was my great-great uncle, he was a coastguard at Winterton during the 1950s. He then went on to be a coastguard at Yarmouth. He retired to Walton on Naze befor he died in 1985 aged 78.

Does anyone have any information or stories about Eddy? We would be very grateful if you would email some to us.   
Yours sincerely,

Erica Jordan
