    Good calendar, George!

  • Many thanks David, I wanted to get some exposure for those rather un-glamorous ships that I’m sure most people just take for granted. Glad you liked it!

    what a great theme for a collection and a fine tribute to these brave sailors

  • Hi Maggie, thanks so much. My Dad was a merchant seaman and my grandfather was a deep sea fisherman, and I worked on ships as a Marconi marine tech. for some years, so I always had a love for those work-horses of all shapes and sizes.
