Hello from Canada

Hi All,

I've just registered here. While I have never served on a ship, I have always been fascinated by them. My main interest is the ships of World War II, especially those of the Royal Navy. As my username suggests, HMS Renown is my all-time favourite ship and I do hope can contribute something worthwhile to the forums.

Your knowledge of the beautiful Renown Class was a very interesting contribution to my RFA Petronel posting. Many thanks.

Thank you Graybeard. I've been studying Renown since I was a kid. I am always glad to see a photo of her and to help in any way I can.

It seems your RFA Petronel photo was taken sometime between the completion of Renown's re-armouring and bulging (1926) and the beginning of Repulse's second reconstruction (1933).

Take Care,
Monty

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Since I think there very few good looking ships left in the world, my primary focus will be on older ships in general, warships in particular.
