Who would have thought I'd have to go to the 1st aid cabin for sun screen, in Greenock? The big bonus o...

Re: Welcome

Greetings from another new start. Got here via Ships Nostalgia when the name of a Clyde shipyard that I'd never heard of linked to this site via Google. I look forward to increasing my knowledge of Clyde ships and shipbuilding. I was an apprentice engine fitter at Fairfields '61-66, Merchant Navy wi...
