Aerial photo of Campbeltown Shipyard sent in by Arthur Crossan.

Would be interesting to see other photos from the shipyard days if anyone has any? Must be some stories to be told from that place! 8)

Thanks for that smiles.Just researched Trench Point.During World War 2 there was a string of mines at the mouth of the Loch which would be detonated by a controller watching from The Lookout on Davaar Island.

Gizmo you are quite right with the spelling but if the topic of nicknames came up it was spelt like that.

Thanks for posting.

Shooders is also a Potteries dialect pronunciation of shoulders.
