We had an interesting email from Russel who lives in Tasmania.
He found this “foot-tall hand crocheted toy sailor with the letters NSRI on its life-vest” in a charity shop. He has since christened him Gavin and is now looking for a loving home for him.
If there is a sentimental crewman or collector who may be interested in buying this momento from Russel, we will be happy to put you in touch with him.
These dolls were knitted for NSRI, years ago, as part of a fundraising drive.
