    ha ha Ivan - decorative work? more like slap it on anything that stays still for 30 seconds, if it moves - well you know the rest to that one.

    Marian #@13, when we were painting an alleyway deckhead or similar, if you got the section with a lot of pipes or trunking in it that was a banjo fleet. The older hands would usually "" work the head "" and work it so that they would get a clear area.
    Regards Michael

    And of course not forgetting the "Holiday"which none of us would own up to.

    #14, Ah! Tony! don't you remember the Ben Line vssls with their Chinese painters and the panelled outside bulkheads, made to look like wooden varnished panels with thistles and petal line in each corner. No transfers in those days.
