Ceremonial Sinking of "Sunshine"

The Ceremonial Sinking of Sunshine, March 1966. The fishing boat "Sunshine" belonged to James "Stumpy" Matthews and was on active service for a few years after he died in 1957. However in 1966 the time came for a ceremonial sinking of this Poole fishing boat. The cannon at the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Sandbanks, was fired in tribute as the old boat was towed past. Bill Rook (Stumpy's grandson) was the one who put the axe in the old boat. Information and images supplied by Garth Matthews (Stumpy's grandson)
