50 years ago, the crew of the Small World balloon attempted a trans-Atlantic crossing. My dad, Tim, my grandfather Bushy, with Colin and Rosemary Mudie. They travelled four days in the air, then 20 days by sea between Tenerife and Barbados.
On my father's birthday, after some time at sea and with some distance to go, they opened a tin of evaporated milk to celebrate.
Here, Colin (left) and Tim meet again, in more comfortable circumstances, at a family celebration of Dad's birthday.
