Stuart Cameron
Scotland
N/A I have a long standing interest in the shipping and shipbuilding scene, have compiled a spreadsheet list of some 22,000 'Clydebuilt' ships and amassed a significant collection of Clyde ship photos. I am currently assembling this into an order form and hope to put some of it on a web page in future. I have been involved in the efforts to preserve the paddle steamer Waverley, the last seagoing paddler in the world and the last in the very long line of famous Clyde Steamers. I have been a Waverley Commodore Club member (season ticket holder) for 17 years and I am currently a committee member of the Scottish Branch of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society.
I am intersted in receiving any photos - old or new - of the Clyde its shipyards and ships, any out of print publications on the subject and would be pleased to answer any questions on the subject if I can
I live in Cambuslang and work in Mitsui Babcock (ex Babcock & Wilcox) at Renfrew. I am Group Leader of the Burners Group at the company's Technology Centre which is involved in developing new combustion equipment for the reduction of atmospheric emissions.

My dad came from Dundee and his sister and family lived in Methil, Fife, until their death. I still have a cousin in Dunfermline. I have visited Scotland four times for a total of about six months, and I loved every minute. I would love to hear from somebody who comes from the area my mum came from. I'm in the wrong web pages to find anyone from Dundee. Actually, I do know more about the Glasgow/Lanarkshire area, both from visiting and listening to mum reminisce. I am single and worked as a speech therapist until I recently took early retirement.
