Deep Sea, Tony and myself are striving to find much, this is the return list, once we have got most will return to these, You could help much if you could spend a few minutes or so on this.

Just require a bit of help please, add links or attach photos etc.

Have not looked on this site as yet, scouring the net for many and will, as said return ASAP.

Any help appreciated.

Hi Vernon,
The Araby Keith refers to is the one built by A.McMillan & Son, Dumbarton, Yard No. 630. She was mined and sunk west of the Nore LV whilst on passage from London to Santos with a general cargo.Owners Royal Mail Lines. Incident occurred on 27th December 1940.
Regards,
John C.

MORE INFO REQUIRED ON: ARABY

ARABY - Motor Vessel - 27th December 1940 (Mine)

RE: Dont know if the NA would have a Pic?

In reality there are many to find, hopefully free, thanks for the link, will record all, if by chance we do not have too many missing may look at purchasing to complete:

Will pass on copy of all to yourself and anyone that may help at end, this will also all go towards WALHFMMNF:

With a little help from my Merchant Navy Friends. (http://hernamewasss.blogspot.com/)

and may raise a few bob towards MN good causes.

All thanks again, K.

Tried to attach copy of the Araby doc, too big for the site, will e.mail as an example.

You have all helped greatly on Araby, I am adding all as I go along.

Think ADC's will not be possible?

A.D.C. 527: So using attached pic for now for ADC 527

A.D.C 1272: and using same attached pic for now for ADC A.D.C 1272

ASHBURY: There is apparently only one survivng photograph of the Ashbury available at Greenwich and it is of very poor quality. There is also one available of her under a previous name NITEDAL at the South African Maritime Museum, also sounds like a no no, but please try.

RE: i keep coming to dead ends, but still looking, ps, that museum in south africa charges 30 per photo. Tony Wilding.

Thanks for trying mate, those posted here will be more difficult, hence the request, we continue on a major list and cannot spend to much time on each. But if the many on site can afford a few minitutes to try, all ids appreciated.

PS - RE: that museum in south africa charges 30 per photo

If I had to pay for all, would be about 6,000 pound at that rate, would appreciate all help on this. We could turn it around and eventually make half of that with luck, for and towards MN good causes.

Would love to be able, in the future to be able to help in the kind of work that Deep Sea conducts.

Hence, asking for all help now. Every penny raised will go to said MN good causes.

Hi Keith.
sorry to be the bearer of bad news , but i think the pic of the Laverock is of the one built in 1947 1209 tons built for GSNC i think her yard number was 386.
The Sunderland Site Page 022 (http://www.searlecanada.org/sunderland/sunderland022.html)
Have a look at this site Sunderland ship builders. scroll down to 1947.

Absolutely luducrus prices ,i think that anyone who thinks of Buying at that price should really have second thoughts!
I am sure it only costs a fraction of that to get Printed,and on top of that i suppose they want you to pay the postage!
Rather trawl the Net for the rest of my life ! haha!:)
Cheers

Easy Money i call it!:mad:

HI VERNON, i phoned NMM at Greenwich, and queried the prices, but u get nowhere, just a load of stupid excuses, the only wa to be able to afford there prices is if 2 people want same photo, buy 1 and make a copy, but they say that is not allowed, they claim copyright. so u cant win, ? ? ? TONY.
