Intense Concentration in Boathouse 4

Fingerless gloves and thermals are essential wear.

I met a most interesting man - Jim - who started work as an RN apprentice shipwright in BH4 in 1936 and (with voyages in between, including Atlantic Convoys) worked in the dockyard for the MoD until retirement. At 96 he was full of life, fascinating stories and interest in others. An inspiration! I hope he visits again when I am there.

May 13th is 'Museums at Night', and I shall be telling sea stories to groups of children until 9pm when they head over to Action Stations! for the sleepover. An odd shanty may creep in.......
