Thank you for this. I am looking for a late 50's early 60's photo of the Prospector. This one is much later.

Sorry I don't have one in my personal archive but you can get a copy of the official H&W launch and sea trials photographs from the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. The guy you need to contact there is ken Anderson who is in charge of the photographic dept. If you tell him Tommy ex H&W advised you he may push your request to the top of his pile. He is very busy and service can be a little slow. Hope this helps. (Thumb)

If no luck with UFTM, go back to www.merchant navy.net and ask in forum for photo, the site admin: is fantastic and will probably come up with the answer.
