Subject: RE: Lyr Req: River Clyde
I must confess, when saw the title of this thread, I thought it might be about the Gallipoli landings - one of the ships used for landing troops was the "River Clyde" (IIRC the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and Royal Munster Fusiliers were badly cut up trying to land from this ship).
