Requests

Well, the time has come when our shipping community needs a break from the current World situation. I, along with many others, will be spending rather a lot of time indoors. To ease the burden and to take us away from the media bombardment related to COVID-19 I am currently offering a little bit of self-indulgence!

If you have any favourite ship (preferably with a Dover connection however tenuous i.e. fleet mate/sister/company sister etc. etc) and you wish (subject to photograph availability) a history of her to be published, please add your suggestion/s via the comments here and I’ll see what I can come up with?

Best Wishes

Nigel Thornton
