Greetings all,
Does anyone know whatever happened to Westminster dredging co's Hoppers WD Tyne & Clyde, I last remember them working with the WD Amerika at Eastham in the mid eighties. I have happy memories of trips out to the Liverpool bar in them during this time.
Any help would be apreciated
Best wishes

Worked once for WDCo (better life in prison) Had to change cyl head on No1 Cyl, changed it in good time so could go home at 1 oclock, when the Irish engineer said "why did you do that one" because No1 wanted to be repaired, Oh no he replied thats No1 pointing to No6 , thats the one to change. The only man in the MN who numbered things from the stern of the vessel.Home for tea instead.
