HMS Albion Bell Rope HMS Albion Bell Rope

A new Captain joined HMS Albion yesterday, blow me over, he had a Twitter account. So I asked him if he could get the “Albion Twitter Comms Rating” to reply to my Tweets. Had a few replies in my in-box this morning.
I had the following reply:
“Good afternoon Knotter. TY for the ongoing enthusiastic support and interest. I have just seen your message to the Captain. How can I help?”
“Delighted for you to use the bell rope images on your website. Our bell rope which we will gift to Chester next week was made by the sailors on most recent LH seamanship spec course at RALEIGH.”
“The other ceremonial bell ropes were made by one of the riggers who gifted them to the ship. He wishes to stay anonymous so we have not given any detail”

I just wanted to display some excellent work done by Steven Le Sayโ€Ž on FaceBook.

“After yesterday’s massive fishing hook I thought I would make one that I could definitely use. I’m going to make a few different styles of hooks and toggles then go and try them all out.
Penny for size reference”

I personally love this as it is really going back to basics. Hopefully I will shortly be able to give you an update on how well they worked – Is Steven a bitter fatter or starving hungry?
