Kyle - thank you so much for 'borrowing' for us!

I LOVED the Queen Elizabeth one the most (and the accompanying soundtrack!).
I had images of my grandparents sitting in cinema seats on their weekly trip to the 'pictures' and watching the news footage!
How weird to think such things back then were their only way of catching up with news from the big wide world and then generations later here i am watching the same stuff witht the magic of the interent.

Magical  ;D

Thank you for the footage. I would love to have been aboard in the Swinging 60's.

I wish I could have a mock cabin built in a shed in the garden.
Im free...

Nice to see the lifeboats/tenders being built

Same here. It's only when someone comments on an earlier post that I see these things have been posted.

Thank you :)
