Guys goofing off

If a sailor's life is a merry life, there must be plenty of time to mess around with the crew.

Going for a ride

"After my daughter Alexandra was born in 1976, I had to sell my two-seater Spitfire and we purchased the now much-maligned Austin Allegro Sport. Although it was quite quick, it was let down by a gearbox that appeared randomly to select any gear. Alexandra was just six months old in this photo when she first took to the wheel. Next month, I am taking her son, Adam (my grandson) to the new Great British Car Journey museum which will open in Ambergate, Derbyshire. This features cars from the 1950s to the 1980s. I have booked a “memory lane” drive in their Allegro Sport. This then prompted me to take this faded photo from an old album and restore it using Photomyne."
