Re: Greasy Spoon

Yes Taffy, the pub was called Dicks Hotel and was run by an ex Head Barman I believe. It was and still is in Beattie Street Balmain and was a regular yearly gathering of ex P&O mariners. The wife of the licensee used to get up and start singing in the afternoons after she and all the rest of us had consumed a few drinks. The get together was organised by an ex purser and his wife who was also an ex WAP.
