I have just latched on to this site as well so Hi to you all. I must apologise for one thing however I am ex Royal Navy. Sorry about that.
My interest though and why I nipped into the Everard thread is that I have been researching the old now defunct diesel manufacturer of Sirron diesels, the Newbury Diesel Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of FT Everard.
I have been doing this for a while mainly because when my father was alive he worked post war testing the marine diesels before they left for whatever ship they were to be installed in. Additonaly though I felt the Sirron name was disappearing into the sunset and wanted to preserve as best as possible both for the marine and our local history.
I would invite some of the Everard's crew amongst you to have a look at the project to date and perhaps let me have the benefit of your experiences with Sirron diesels and the high speed four strokes.
I guess it's OK to post a link, the site is not for profit, no adverts and any links have been checked by me as OK. If I'm not allowed to link, please let me know mr moderator.
