In October 1954 The England Cricket team set off from Tilbury to tour Austrailia. My Dad Lenny Carter nicknamed "Kingy" was pictured second from the right leaning over the rails looking down on the team as they were being interviewed by the Daily Mirror. By the Way England won that tour.

Not sure but I think they may have set sail at 15:00 on September 15th from Tilbury?? My late father (Frank Burt) also sailed on that voyage, he grabbed a menu one evening and got the entire team to sign it. I've got it now, one of my most treasured possessions !!
