A Happy and Peaceful 2016
We would like to wish all of our many visitors both to this Blog and the Leith Shipyards website a very Happy and Peaceful 2016
Ship No 347 started out with the name LOCH KATRINE one of the Loch Class Frigates built at the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb Ltd, in the dark days of the Second World War
She went on to become part of the New Zealand Navy, as HMNZS ROTOITI and spent some years based in the far south of the Southern Ocean on station as a rescue and weather ship as support to the bases in the Antarctic.
So please spare a though or two for those who may not be able to be at home at this time of the year.
