Free pass to Houton

A photo of my dad's pass for the free boat from Lyness to Houton for workers and their families from way back in time when Lyness was a busy place. On the back it has a stamp saying Commanding Officer HMS Pomona 1950

Back then they didn't use the sloppy and ungrammatical 'their' instead of 'his or her'. Nowadays it's almost universal. (See final sentence above signature. Pity about the double r in transferable.)
