Tales from the Nick, The man on the Royal Daffodil













During the 1950's pleasure steamers operated from Margate Jetty to London carrying day trippers, the two most famous and well known being the "Royal Daffodil" and the "Queen of the Channel". This article from the Margate Historical Society Volume 3 Number 6 from Stan Reed's Tales from the Nick series, is about what happened to a paralytic drunk who unfortunately happened to have a return ticket for the "Royal Daffodil" in his pocket.
