March 28th 2014: Two Birthday Celebrations

On March 28th, a small group of friends gathered on the Tattershall Castle on the Thames to celebrate
both Caroline's birthday – the start of UK offshore radio – and the 15th birthday of the Radio London website.

Cousin Moosie brought the Radio Day Award to show his friends.
Guy's wife Roma sent him a new moose girlfriend, Elkie
Four renegades, and one moose! Penny is a 'pirate by proxy', representing her late husband Jason Wolfe. Jason and Bud were also 'onshore pirates' on Radio Free London.
We all loved George's sweater - although sometimes the 'p' disappears under his arm and he advertises 'Irate Radio'!
Mary and Bud share a joke

The joint birthday cake: designed by Mary, produced by Londoncakes
Close-up of the cake – so nice we didn't want to cut it - but it tasted great!
The cutlass was too blunt...
... so Moosie fetched a knife
Ready to tuck in.

We'd like to thank Sabrina and the staff of the Tattershall Castle for being so accommodating
to a bunch of pirates (and moose) and for giving us great service.
