A fine ship, but built with the sole purpose of dumping several thousand tons of turds into the English Channel every day of its working life. The current fuss over the accidental discharge of several million gallons of untreated effluent (but no 'solids', or so they tell us), into the Firth of Forth shows how times and our sensibilities have changed over the years. I would of course, like to make it clear that I'm not expressing any support at all, for either practice.
And you wondered why they were called "Bovril Boats"?

Just between you and me I seem to have this ability to walk on water.
I'm great at BBQ's where I do my trick with the two loaves of bread and the five fishes.
I'm thinking I might have a problem.

RED FUNNEL ?? I wasn't even a twinkle when the first one was taken.!! >:(
youngat6? could have been there though, because he was older then than he is now.
So could Colin Bishop come to think of it.

We once had a mountain of sewerage sludge deposited in a field next to a footpath, about 1/4 of a mile from our house. eventually a muck spreader deposited it in the fields all around us, YUK? no, actually it smelt like blackberries!

It's nice to see a photo of "HMS. BRECON" again. I was an apprentice model maker at Vospers at that time, having helped in the build of of several models of the Hunt class and single roll minehunters. In fact when i first started at Vospers HMS WILTON was still at the yard. Good days.

I see that Estonia has bought HMS's  Sandown, Inverness and Bridport.

Sandown has been named after a British Admiral, ENS Admiral Cowan

She was built for the City of Glasgow council to dump sludge in the Firth of Clyde, the passengers were old age pensioners who went free of charge and had a nice tea room / state room to view the scenery as she went about her business. A practice they carried on with her replacement.
