Tribute to Eddie Clapson and his brilliant work as a Press photographer.

Eddie Clapson, in his too short life, captured the image and the friendship of thousands on Dover people.

As a Dover Express photographer Eddie was out and about when news was breaking or when townsfolk were enjoying themselves, especially at football matches. After he retired Eddie worked several years in a freelance capacity where he continued to be a friend of so many.

Eddie, who loved music, played a leading role in helping up-and-coming musicians and groups.

Eddie has departed this world but his memory lives on.
