    BENLAWERS launch

    Interested to see the shot of her in the London Docks.This is her launch on a very grey 23rd January 1970. I just happened to be going round the docks in Glasgow that day and was unaware that she was being launched.I just came round a shed corner when she went in hence the poor photo.
