HMS Conway 1859-1974.

HMS Conway 1859-1974

This book is the first comprehensive review of Conway's history, operation, organization, and daily life, in the context of the shipping industry’s evolving needs. Illustrated by over 260 pictures, it describes events from opening day in 1859 to closure in 1974; Life afloat on the River Mersey. How the wooden walled man of war narrowly avoided being sunk by Luftwaffe bombs during the Merseyside blitz. The idyllic years on the Menai Strait at Bangor and Plas Newyyd. The terrible loss of the ship in 1953, a national controversy, is comprehensively and authoritatively explained for the first time. The years ashore and events leading up to closure complete this extensive chronology. Old Conways’ fascinating reminiscences of people, Places and daily routine bring these events to life. The incredible responsibilities and freedoms the enjoyed contrast markedly with today’s risk averse society.
