There are no postcards for sale on this website Coronia 2 Brit – Watchful – Brit – Yorkshire Lady – Coronia 2 This page is devoted to postcards and photographs of the Scarborough diesel excursion ship Coronia 2 which had previously served at Great Yarmouth and on the Thames, and had participated at Dunkirk. She was owned by Longfield Brothers for use from the same port, and was a revolution in the design of the Yarmouth’s excursion boats – being a low draft manoeuvrable boat powered by twin Crossley diesels.
Brit was very successful in the s, generally making two 2-hour trips from the Town Hall Quay out to sea, embarking more passengers at the Britannia Pier.
They bought the Coronia 2 in and brought her back from Gibraltar to join her previous fleet mate.
Both horses, handled by the highly respected Charlie McBride, who has worked his way up from headlad to Newmarket trainer, are bay fillies. Indeed, although she will be thrown out in due course, if you look up the result Mandarin Princess ridden by John Egan is still the winner even though she did not even run in the race. Dramatic news – the ‘winner’ of Yarmouth’s opener, 2yo Mandarin Princess, was in fact 3yo stablemate Millie’s Kiss.
Some called for horses to have their microchips scanned as they enter the paddock before a race, not just as they arrive at the racecourse stables, while others called for the race to be called void, a power not currently invested in the stewards. Some suggested local stewards be empowered to disqualify horses in exceptional circumstances. Racegoers at Yarmouth were kept in the dark about the situation until two hours and 40 minutes after the race when the BHA, who had been working out what to do, issued a statement at 4.
Racecourse commentator tommoracing calls for greater accountability in aid of racegoers after events this afternoon at Yarmouth: Since we introduced the microchipping identification system an incident such as this is, as far as we are aware, unprecedented. After the weighed in has been declared on the racecourse, the result cannot be amended by the stewards. Having said that we will, of course, determine what steps need to be put in place to prevent it from happening again.
We sympathise with the betting operators and betting public who have potentially been affected by this incident. I feel sorry for Charlie.

His family said he died on Wednesday night at the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, where he had been in a coma on a life-support machine. A minute’s silence will be held for Mr Moczyk at a meet-and-greet event with Tyson Fury in Gorleston on Thursday night, local promoter Leon Docwra said.
A hospital spokesman said Mr Moczyk’s family had been at his bedside when he died and some of his organs had been donated for transplant.

Teachers disciplined after student given ‘terrorist’ award The Academy has hit upon an important point, which is that making people smile is hard. And what creates a better environment in which to learn and succeed than the person next to you chucking up in a bucket? High school students freak out when Barack Obama surprises them to give message of encouragement Imaginative teachers can incorporate the sick into the lesson, saying: One girl at the school says she was told retractable pens were no longer allowed, as they click and become distracting.
This is why the kids will need to be sent on a special course where they learn to be sick in a bucket silently.

Lowestoft , Gorleston , N. Walsham From a traditional, hard-working and prosperous fishing town Great Yarmouth became one of the top holiday resorts in the UK. Bombed in the first-ever air raid – by Zeppelin in the first world war – it became a major port target for the Germans in the second world war. The changing fortunes of the town meant it had to veer away from its dependency on herring, and instead turned its attention to tourism, attracting millions of holidaymakers to its hotels, guest houses and burgeoning number of caravan and chalet parks.
Major stars of showbiz mingled with happy holidaymakers who flocked to their shows Great Yarmouth has been re-inventing itself throughout the decades and centuries and it continues to change, more recently with an outer harbour and enterprise zones to attract offshore companies and creating hundreds of jobs.
Its heritage is recognised as being one of the best in East Anglia, with an ancient town wall and many museums and places of interest, including the award-winning Time and Tide Museum, Elizabethan House, Tolhouse Museum, the towering Nelson’s Monument and the imposing Town Hall overlooking the busy and working River Yare.

The construction of the wall was authorised by the Crown in but building did not begin until The method of construction was that a trench, later the moat, was dug to a depth of 5ft. Its base was lines with large flagstones to form a solid level surface. Walling of knapped flint, some 2ft 6ins thick was then built as a revetment containing the loose material forming the trench sides. A 5ft trench was dug along the inner side of the revetment wall and at intervals of about 11ft.

Yarmouth considered itself to be the “Blackpool of the East” complete with its own version of the “Golden Mile”. I never found much attraction in photographing this aspect of Great Yarmouth. But the little pleasure boats were fascination, especially the quartet of Yarmouth, Gorleston, Southtown and Cobholm districts of Great Yarmouth that doubled as ferries running from the town centre to the harbour mouth on the Gorleston side.
The brewery and the church were on opposite sides of the street and both were set alight. It was said that the local fire brigade were unable to deal with both fires simultaneously and anecdotally, the fire chief had to make a decision. His priority so it was said was to save the brewery. The church was extensively damaged and not repaired until the late s. One thing that did interest me greatly was the advent of pleasure flying. Initially Anglia Air Charter operated from a field to the south of Gorleston, but after a year, moved to the more permanent base of North Denes in around I never flew in one of their aircraft.
I remained with Air UK until I retired in – full circle!
