Hope this pic hasn't been posted on this site already--I know there are hundreds here of this fine ship.

Can any tell me which slip she was built and launched from, bit of history could be slipping away from my memory if I do not get it refreshed.
cheers Ted

Hi Ted, she was built and launched from slipway 14 of the Musgrave Yard on September 23, 1957.
May your memory be refreshed and encouraged.
Regards, Brent

Just like a nice cold beer, thanks Brent, Musgrave was in there but without certainty but the rest was lost in the grey cells
Cheers

I was there on 16th March 1960 as an excited 11 year old with my late father (Foreman Joiner, Cork Insulation and Asbestos Company).
