Ardshiel radar modified

Derek carrying out scanner maintenance on Ardshiel. It was a very long way up to the top of that radar mast but you used to get some very good VHF reception with the aerials set that high.This photo completes the set of all 4 Ard class tankers. Ardshiel was the subject of a very well known book in the 1970’s called “Supership” written by Noel Mostert.
