At last,managed to figure out how to use this site,only taken about 6 weeks lol.Firstly what a great site,enjoyed hour's browsing,and reading the comment's,some very educated exseamen out there,your's truely not one of them,hence 6week's or so to work it out.Could anyone let me have a picture of the British Soldier (tanker),circa 1959/60,idealy in coulor as i intend to scratch build a model,and after all this time the old grey cell's are a bit rusty,regarding the paint scheme (funnel ect)thanks and you all keep up the good work...

A quick search on the site for British Soldier has thrown up this one here (http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=49820) - I appreciate that you asked for coloure, but maybe it is a start and someone can come up with more.

old6umpy, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
You'll soon get into the way of things here and I believe you'll find the effort worthwhile.
Good to have you onboard.
