MAY BRANCH MEETING will take place at 7PM WEDNESDAY MAY 18 in the Lower Lounge of the Naden Naval Officers’ Wardroom. Peter Hammond will present a look at basic marine steam plant designs through the years. Included will be a look and discussion of his experiences working as First Engineer on one of the last working steam ships in the American Merchant Marine.
For the last seven years Peter has done summer relief work up on the Bering Sea on a converted container ship that is fitted with a fish processing factory. This should be an interesting and enjoyable, entertaining,
We encourage and look forward to another good turn out at the May 18 meeting. Come early for a beverage and to meet colleagues in the upstairs lounge. Guests and spouses are always welcome. Hope to see you there.
