Thank you for this interesting nugget of information. The Captains Cabin of HMS Ganges, which your grandfather Tom helped to install, was the original bar of the Hotel in 1929. It's still intact and loved and acts as our private dining room for intimate suppers (and sometimes small weddings). I'm afraid we don't have any further archive material as this has been disappeared over previous years but I'm rebuilding the archive and will add this to it. Any further memories are welcome!
