Good morning gents,

My first post on this forum - hope I have not screwed it up?

Following retirement from mainstream seafaring in command in MN, I made a large number of delivery voyages in ex military craft, including my first such in the ex-Army Range Patrol Craft "Petard", delivering her from Pembroke Dock to Portland, 17th/19th May 2002.  I believe that she was a sister craft to "Falconet" (believed to be in Egypt) and "Grenade"? I understand that at Pembroke Dock she had been designated Air Service Craft (ASC) and I think had been operated by Serco, but I am unceratin as to her exact role there.  I recently saw a post showing a photo of the "Petard" at Maryport, Cumbria and am keen to get a copy of this photo and any others that might be available - can anyone help?

I later took ex RAF HMAFV's "Lancaster", "Spitfire" and Halifax on disposal delivery voyages and have some information regarding the subsequant disosal of thse craft and some photos which I can make available to anyone interested - in exchange for some information on these craft and their service careers.
