Thread Name: Save historic ship The City Of Adelaide
Subject: RE: Save historic ship The City Of Adelaide
Allan, I'm amazed that the removal process wasn't featured on national (UK) news at the time. If it was, I completely missed it.
For a ship that is equivalent in historical value to the Cutty Sark, the treatment of the Carrick/City of Adelaide by successive UK and Scottish governments has been nothing short of scandalous. At least now she appears to be in the hands of people with the vision and hopefully the deep pockets to bring the vessel the attention she deserves.
