|Title||Walter Mussett - Winifred Hone memoirs|
|Abstract||Walter Mussett, known as Navvy, another well known Islander who volunteered for the
River Fire Service during the Second World War. His hair always seemed to stand up on end,
which he said was caused by the experiences he'd had doing his duty. This reiteration certainly made his listeners stand on end also. In peace time he had been skipper of many well known yachts, one of which, the DUET, was
owned by the generous Mr Courtauld.
