Smile Welcome

A very warm welcome George. I helped to build some of your ships during my time at Hawthorn Leslie and Swan Hunter. We would love to see some of your photographs. Please pick out the most interesting and post them on the gallery with a description of the subject. Most of all, enjoy your membership.

Fred

Hi Strawberry. I think we missed each other all along the line.
I was in Grey from 84 - 86 and Appleleaf in 1989. We transferred her to the
RAN in Nov '89 in Immingham and I retired from there - I think - it was a
boozy handover !!
