IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

Over the last couple of months at least two people have contacted me via the contact button asking for details of how to send photographs to this site. I have responded to both but my message is bouncing back undeliverable. PLEASE PLEASE when contacting me ensure that the email address you are sending me is totally correct otherwise I cannot respond. To those who may be fuming as they have not had a reply I would say many thanks for your interest but please try again giving me your correct contact details.

LATEST NEWS AND PHOTO'S


 
 
A cutting from Kent Messenger April 19th 1941 kindly provided by Kevin Haydon. Wartime regulations have meant that the vessels name and the location of the incident have had to be omitted. It does of course refer to the horrific 'Lunula Incident' and the fate that befell the crew of the tug Persia  [ex Dongara] at Thames Haven on 9th April 1941.

Another page GALLERY has been added. This will contain photos of general interest that do not appear elsewhere on the site.
 
Photos that were on this page for a long while have NOT been deleted, but now appear elsewhere on the site. Most will have gone to either CREW GALLERY, TOWS GALLERY or GALLERY. It became necessary for me to carry out one of my periodic tidy ups of the site to ensure its future operation. Many thanks for the continued support of all visitors.
