That's interesting - I came east at seventeen. I didn't want to be an ice-cream seller for six months of the year and unemployed for the rest.  :(

I did some contract work in Tees Dockyard in about 1990 on a Caledonian Macbrayne ship called the Isle of Mull.  I just remember working with some really great people, very skilled and dedicated to shipbuilding.

Origin of your address:

'Henry William Ferdinand Bolckow [Bölckow], MP (8 December 1806 â€" 18 June 1878) was a Victorian industrialist, acknowledged as being one of the founders of modern Middlesbrough.'

Born in Pomerania (no jokes please) Apparently there be a statue to him somewhere in Midb.

Not a lot of people know that. :-bd

Thanks SV !

He's stood in Exchange Place in Middlesbrough. Unfortunately the rather magnificent Royal Exchange was knocked down to make way for a motorway flyover  >:(

If I were creating Pendraken I wouldn't mess about with Romans and  Mongols  I would have started with Centurions , eight o'clock, Day One!

Saw there was a new post about a move, and thought "Pendraken are moving AGAIN?" and then realised someone had posted to an old thread.

Then I saw Aart posting and the message in his sig, and felt all sad again. He's still missed. :(

Hear, hear..... :(
