Welcome to the crew, Jimmy.
You'll find plenty of Denholms lads knocking about the ship to get to know, maybe again.
Enjoy the trip.

Jimmy,

A warm welcome to the site from the Isle of Anglesey, I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
As you have heard, there are plenty of us ex-Denholm members.
I am sure that you will spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck!

Denholms:
I wonder if any of you Denholm chaps came across my very good friend Capt Brian McManus. We were both on HMS Conway in WW2. He is alive and well in N Wales and very active in the local Normandy Veterans Association. He was master of some ship that was trapped in the Suez Canal and has written about it in varius nautical publications !
