08/02/12 Blue Town

In Gillingham I met Jim. In his 90 years of life he has undertaken over 50,000 dives under the surface of the blue sea. He was kind enough to tell me some wonderful tales including how he was once trapped under water at the docks in Blue Town for 4hrs. He showed me some wares from Blue Town, a boat in a bottle and a divers bust from Whelan’s which he painted himself. These humbrol blueish paints are in shades of Pusser’s (Naval Slang) grey.
