Photographs taken by Peter Bannister

 
(1) Sea Quest (3 legged oil rig) under construction at Harland & Wolff in February 1966.   (2) The ship, Myrina, under construction at Harland & Wolff in February 1966.

 
(3) Launch of the Myrina at Harland & Wolff in September 1967.   (4) Launch of the Myrina at Harland & Wolff in September 1967. It is displaying a Shell crest.

Peter's son Gordon came across these photographs in an album at home. Apparently in the album it says that at 190,000 tons the Myrina was the biggest ship built in the British Isles at the time.

Did you work on either the Sea Quest or Myrina? Do you remember the construction or launch of other ships? Share your stories and memories here at Your Place and Mine. Discuss this article at the bottom of the page.
