    Default King George V, Jun 82


    Something a bit different; a small collection of photos my dad took of King George V being broken up near Cardiff Docks in june 1982. Unfortunately I can't find any info on this particular ship, all I can get is stuff about the Warship . Anyway, enjoy!













    Thanks for looking ;)

    It appears she was a former Clyde Steamer, found some postcards of her in her prime too.

    I knew the name rang a bell which is why I said it looked like a steamer. Good work searching that out smileysal :)
