'The Spry' The Last Surviving River Severn Trow

Kaz and I saw this rather splendiferous exhibit at the Blist Hill Victorian museum.














Some information on The Spry.

The Spry

Hi Bodger, cheeky I know, but I don't suppose you might be able to email me a copy of those pictures you posted (SPRY)?

My daughter is doing a project at school about the spry, my great, great (her great, great, great) grandfather was the last captain of that ship. His name was William Hallings.

I was searching the web for information, and came across your post. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Howie.

Hi Howie. I can't see a problem in you posting and pasting my pictures. You're welcome to them. If there's any problem, I'll get Kaz to send them to you. Let me know.
A warm welcome to OTG too.
