The only known Offshore Radio ship's dog "Raffles".

The story of Raffles is that Peter Chicago rescued him when he was found in the dock during the Ross Revenge fitting in Spain. He then stayed onboard until Peter eventually left the station. The two were inseparable and following quarantine Raffles joined Peter at his home. Raffles died in 1997, aged approx 17 years
.



The back deck of the Ross - when the station originally returned it had "LA 319 CAROLINE" painted in white.

Following the change to 558 kHz the "3" was changed to "5" - 519 being the closet metre frequency to 558.


Throughout her career Caroline has always used frequencies ending in "9" to rhyme with Caroline - sometimes despite the fact that in fact the frequency is not quite correct.
