Historical Walks
These walks were written in the early 1990s and are fascinating for that fact. They describe the scene from 100 years ago but at the same time give a glimpse of the scene in the 1990s.

  1. I don’t know if Stuart Jones has my original notes but if not would you like some information. Several of the wartime ships known as Infantry Landing Ships were converted or repaired at Penarth Docks for the Royal Navy. Two of these ships HMS Prins Albert and HMS Prince Philippe are in a group of ships I have been researching. HMS Prince Philippe sunk not long after her conversion and friends in Scotland may have found the wreck but we won’t know until the New Year. Regards

    • Thanks Rick. We would be grateful for all contributions to our history records. Stuart copied me on his reply to you. Please email the details to me and the links to any photographs. Thanks again Rick.
