[COLOR="Blue"]Will never forget the comments of the dockers when the Obuasi docked in Glasgow with us all in tropical whites due to the heat.

The West African tailoring and 'shortness in the leg' didn't exactly help the situation either.[/COLOR]

There's a builders model of the City of New York in the entrance lobby of Furness General hospital, Barrow in Furness. Not sure why it's there as the ship was built on the Tyne and not Barrow? The only link is that it was built by Vickers, who had yards in both locations.....
