Purfleet Quay - Capt Vancouver statue.

Michael King and others forget that Vancouver left Lynn aged 13 and never returned.

Mr King, who berates Nelson’s warfaring, should remember that Vancouver spent nine years in warships as well. He died in obscurity in London, so why don’t we all forget about Vancouver and Nelson and come up with an original name. Oh and by the way, in his autobiography Roger Taylor hated King’s Lynn, so let’s can that ridiculous notion too.
