We helped save the Nomadic from the breakers' yard. But there's another group of ships that have lost their home-- those of the Warship Preservation at Birkenhead-- and are threatened with the same fate.

Could we please take a moment to sign the online petition at

Thank you

Done. Thanks, Pat, for posting this.

It's well worthwhile trying everything possible to save these historic ships (the subs are my personal favourites).

Hi, Paul, and thanks. Naturally, this was posted at uboat.net on account of the U-534 and the Onyx Thought a post over here might help the petitioners gather a few more names, given the sucess of the Nomadic appeal.

Okay, you lot, where y'at??

Latest on the ships of the Warship Preservation Trust.

"There have been a few developments on the Historic Warships front. The ships have recently been disclaimed by the liquidator and were handed over to the Crown.

We have now heard that the Crown wishes to disclaim the vessels and may let a firm come in to dispose of them.

We cannot let this happen "WE NEED YOUR HELP " below there is a copy of a letter drafted up by the satff and volunteers group of The Warship Preservation Trust.

We would like as many members as possible to e-mail the letter to the list of e-mail addressed below and ask your friends to do the same.

See http://uboat.net/forum/read.php?f=22&i=2042&t=2042
for the text of the petition and the email addresses to which it may be sent.

Thanks

Regarding the above, I've had an e-mail from one of the Wirral Counsellors, who has commented as follows:

"A few days before the ships were closed to the public I visited them together with [a] photographer just in case the worst happens. We took about 300 or so images ‘below decks’ so that there will be a reasonably comprehensive record of what living conditions were like, for future generations."

This Counsellor wants to give these images to the Warship Preservation Trust (who arranged for this work), but he has lost contact with them. I have no contact details in this regard so I am unable to help. If anyone out there can assist in this regard, would they please drop me a line, via Private Message or on this thread.

Thanks, in anticipation.
