The Caroline ships in Amsterdam harbour, 1970

Chris Davies visited the two Radio Caroline ships while they were in harbour in Holland. They had both been impounded by a creditor, the Wijsmuller Tug & Salvage Company, in 1968 and were lying derelict. These photos were taken in 1970.

fan mail to DJ Martin Kayne

The ship was full of the paraphenalia one would expect to find on any radio station. This is a mis-spelled fan letter addressed to DJ Martin Kayne.

Many thanks to Chris for sharing these with us.
There are more pictures of the two Caroline ships from about the same time in Hans Knot's and Fred Kooreman's photo albums.
