I recall that the Richard Lee Barber was frequently moored on the Gorleston side of the Yare at Baker Street in the period 1961-65 when as teenagers, we fished for eels nearby. Duncan Kirkwood

I have a vague recollection of being on the Richard Lee Barber once about 1948/52, I have no idea why but the memory of sitting next to the wheel is quite vivid. Have you any idea of who owned or worked on the tug during this period?

hello, i was wondering if anyone remembered a William Bush who worked on the Richard Lee Barber. And if they had any information on him . it would be the early 1900s

I was the last stoker on the Richard Lee Barber, Mr. Herbert King was Chief, and I was still only in my twenties when she was retired, I am now 75, I was put on the Mud Dredger after her retirement, made some good friends, all gone now.
