The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Christmas Tree on BP ball
Not sure really if it is big or Little Wolf. Callum was a spinner of yarn before he came to Nigg.
No memory of the names of the other two freaks.
I and another welder were working on the middle third node from the far end, waiting for the Lloyd,s inspector to check our root, on the night when a pad eye broke when they were lifting, one of those smaller pile guides. (said to be 70 tons) Then was a great bang and then about 3 seconds to wonder what it was and ponder ones sins while it bounced off the flotation tank and we took a look. We spent the rest of the shift in the tea hut while the safety men checked everything.
