Hi all, to my eternal shame I've only just discovered this site.:o

Lived by the sea all my life, grew up near Portland and have always had an interest in the comings and goings in the Harbour.

I'm hoping some of you might be able to help me answer a few questions about some of those comings and goings, especially from the mid-60's - mid-70's.

Hello Linstock and welcome. In the 50s - 60smany ships visited Portland for degaussing. We would run up and down the buoyed degaussing range off Portland until we got a negative reading. Several BI ships including Nowshera , Nudea,and Waroonga. were degaussed there Welcome once again
