This is, quite possibly, the best photo ever of John Prescott. The Guardian's coverage of it is completely irreverent too, which is all for the better.

I`m the NUS guy who saved Prescotts skin on the Mauretania
He was not on his own as the Colin Brown book would seem to indicate
No martyrdom involved
There were some 15 other crew members also involved
What no one else knows is that I enlisted the help of the Longshoremans Union Local a Mr Antonio Anastasio the brother of Alberto Anastasia
There you go Bruv!
Hows that for a fillip?
Frank Rose ex National Union of Seamen.
Antonio Anastasio = Tough Tony of Brooklyn
I sailed with cunard 1956/65 and was on the Mauretania twice but cant figure where J.Prescott worked?
was he a 1st class winger cabin or tourist?
and what years
