Shirley, is that Greenland Dock on the Thames (part of the Surrey Commercial Docks)?
Did he work on the Thames?
If not, where?

Hi Shirley,

Me and my partner are currently living on Juno 1 on Greenland dock. We would be very happy for you and your father to come and visit. Hopefully he can share some memories with us.

Looking forward to hearing from you
