Ipswich Ship Launchhistorical era: mid 20th century

Evidently a different pub to the Ship Launch in Ship Launch Road. According to the Borough Police licensed premises Register 1903-1923, a bobby on beat number 8 would walk past the Pilot, then the Ship Launch, the Union Jack, the Dolphin, then the Lock Tavern. As we can place the Pilot, the Dolphin and the Lock Tavern, we can work out roughly which area of the quay this pub must have been on.
