That’s Frankie, or Frank, or Mr. Wild to you


“Frank Wild was a placid little man whom nothing ever upset… we always called him Frankie, or Frank, nobody ever called him anything else, the lower deck always called him Mr. Wild. They were never required to but they did automatically. He was a man who exercised a wonderful control without any outward sign of authority.”

— Alexander Macklin
