- Did you go on any school trips?
- Where did you go?
- Memories and trinkets of those special days?
memory was better...
Yes, I know I went on some school trips, but the only one that I can
remember was going to see a boat being launched.
It is such an awesome experience to go there, and to see this massive ship
towering over you. I remember the excitement there, with all my school
mates, and the teachers ( of course )
I don't remember the name of the ship, or anything else about it, but
can remember the bottle of ( I assume champagne ) getting hit on the
side of the ship, and everyone yelling out ( like a hooray ) and the ship
slowly moving into the water.
It was exciting to see..
And in her own words :
Fantastic photo of the launch of the Comet in 1962. I guess Health and Safety were not around then when you look at where all the folk were standing to get a good view!!! I remember I was on the edge of the dock and there was no barrier in front of us! Port Glasgow had a marvellous day and evening celebrating this event. The whole town came out to support it and I can still remember the massive buzz there was then.
I will have to add more as I remember
