The name change has been discussed ad nauseam. Try here http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=13545&highlight=Fort+RosalieArt here, was on board this vessel when it was the Fort Grange, didn't know they had changed her name, would love to go on board her again for old times sake. Why did they change the name? Cheers.
hi lancastrianZinc Chromate is a primer, not a top coat. Lead was common in most paints up to the 1970s , and Red Lead Oxide widely used in ships. However if lead is thought to be the problem it is very easy for doctors to test blood levels and treat accordingly.
Are you telling us the full story?
thanks lancastrianOK mate, I accept you are genuinely seeking information. What led me to think perhaps otherwise was your link to the newspaper report.
Whilst I'm sure that SN members sympathise with your plight, I doubt there is much hope of getting the answers from this forum, as our knowledge of the ship, if any, is from old memories.
His employers, the shipyard and the Ministry of Defence might be better sources.
