Steffi Niwa's Great Grandad Tom Gunn (standing) - 1961


This picture shows my great Grandad Tom Gunn (standing) who was skipper of the "Smiling Morn", with a crew member.  They had just caught a giant halibut.  It was 12 stone and more than six foot long.  This picture is important because it shows people the big halibut that you could catch in the North Sea in 1961.
