Re^2: Wish me joy!

I'm a regular at Chatham Dockyards, usually twice a year with the kids.

In fact my son had a "kip on a ship" sleepover on HMS Cavalier (destroyer, 1944-1972) with his cub scout pack on Saturday night.  He made some rope in the 1,135ft-long ropery too.

Even though most of the land has since been sold off, the scale of the place is enormous - must have been like a small city in its heyday.
