Many thanks again for coming up with the Goods, I really appreciate the new photograph of ''Brimsdown'' as I am building up a very nice history of the ships that I sailed on. I Am looking out at the Med just now from Cyprus and I think of all the many times I sailed by, ''enroute to new adventures past Suez,'' Hi Hi, ''All the Best for now.''
Hello. I’m a little late to the discussion on the Brimsdown but I’m hoping someone will still see this message! She was sailing either into or out of the Thames between 24-26 May 1951 and the steering gear broke. She crashed into one of the bridges on the Thames .... I don’t suppose anyone knows which bridge it was?
