Dear Barbados Free Press,
I hope you can help me with this request, as I don’t really know where to start…
My Dad is the handsome young chap (then !) on the front of your newspaper (January 5, 1967)
I would love to get a better quality copy of the photocopy I have and get it framed for Fathers Day this year…
Do you have the original version please, its very poor quality the version I have… He would be totally thrilled, he tells us stories about his crossing and how the Bajan folk swam out and greeted their boat in Bridgetown and threw bottles of rum on the deck etc it was quite a feat in those days with no navigation tools to speak of etc
If you can please let me know either way that would be lovely.
Thank you very much!
