Calling all Detectives:Fascinating thread guys, really enjoyable, I've got cousins in Swansea but not been near the docks, are they still there or turned into apartments?
The story of the Kate.NL tick my curiosity so off I went into the googlesphere, wow, what a history, bits of her had a working life of near 65 years, they must have used good steel back in 1943 in the Kaiser yards in Oregon. The last 40 years in fresh water would have helped I guess.
Amazing tracking of an old WW2 stalwart. The powers of freshwater for a long life eh?
Thanks for your attention to detail but be on standby, I will be digging out an old tramp-ship that might require your investigative skills.
Happy Days, Mervyn
