Carl Thomson's Radio Caroline photo album

More photos dating from Carl's time with Caroline South. These are from the period when the Mi Amigo lost her anchor and was washed up on Frinton beach. Following this incident, the station borrowed a replacement vessel from the Swedish Radio Syd, the mv Cheeta II. For more details, see here.
