I missed the cold war, but not the cold weather.
Something else thats changed here. No cold weather anymore!

Derek, during the Cold War we GI's were taught not to be afraid of the modern Soviet woman, brown boots and all --I guess you missed out on that! I thought you railroaders were tough!

And there were no such things as pretty Russian tennis stars. Except maybe in the James Bond movies! :-D

My, how times have changed.

Thats sounds very frightening to me, obvioulsy in the days before the pretty Russian tennis stars!

Remember being berthed ahead of her in the Greenland dock , surrey Docks and no wonder she was neat and tidy , they were still chipping away at ten at night :-o Even the "copper" on the gate complained :-D Anyway, also remember she had a woman Mate and I have no doubt she had no problems getting the lads to work into the night - Erma Press was a mere strappling compared to her :-D She actually wore big brown boots with a skirt . :-o

Hi Dave,

These were very nice ships although a bit out of date. Were always nicely kept too.
They just glided past with a very quiet 4 cylinder compound engine and LP turbine providing the power.
Hardly a sound and just a wisp of smoke!
No thumping diesel, those were the days!

Magogman on Jan 08, 2008 06:05 (11 years ago)
That is my idea of a neat ship! :-D
Very nice - they just don't build them that way anymore unfortunately.
