We have several interesting things to be presented here:

1. First one, REAL HIT,  it is a beautiful gift from Graham Bowen - a member of our THPV Bembridge 1938 Restoration Team. It was a very valuable book for Graham - but he sent it to us with bellow attached letter:

Bellow you can see a beautiful book issued by Trinity House London showing a THV Patricia in 1947

2. Next think is a special advertising brochure issued by Smith's Dock Co. Ltd. in 1928. Really incredible booklet. You can read about a history of Smith's Dock, how looked that shipyard and about they working in 1928. Exciting, really.

You have this book here:

3. Smith's Dock Journal - it was a monthly magazine issued by Smith's Dock Co. Ltd. It is a "gold mine" of all useful info about a daily working of Smith's Dock. There is info about changes, new vessels during building and repairing, some interesting info about River Tyne area, always something about a Team of SD. As you see we are trying to collect them more and more. Maybe you can help us to get scans of other ones?
