Hello all

16th November 2007, 11:46
Just joined the site. I found it by trying to find a photo of HMS Challenger on the net. The 1981 one that is. Seems like a great site and I am looking forward to a long nostalgic browse. I'm an ex [are you ever really ex?] Royal Navy type. I couldn't agree more that its about time the Russian convoy folk got some recognition, and the MN guys seem to miss out every time. The nation often seems so ruddy ungrateful.

Welcome board from East Yorkshire, dags.
I've copied your post to the Hello forum for a better response from general membership.
Find your way around and meet some of our other Grey Funnel types.
Enjoy the voyage.

Dags, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
As you probably realize by now, our Naval galleries and forums are extensive and I hope you're enjoying them.
Browse through our other material too: I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

A warm welcome to SN from the Isle of Anglesey.
There is every chance that you will meet old shipmates on this site so, have a good look round and join in the banter as much as possible.
Beware, it is addictive! (Thumb)
