    Very interesting read Zappa, your grandfather was one of the engine room crowd, they were a hard bunch in the old days. My great grandfather worked for White star and Cunard and some of his tales would make your hair curl. No doubt your grandad could more than hold his own with the amount of discharges showing in his book. A real piece of history you got there!,

    One of his job descriptions was "Fireman and Trimmer".

    The first bit is obvious, but what did a Trimmer trim?
