From the wooden vessels of the 19th century to the steel giants of today, the Merseyside yard became synonymous worldwide with shipping excellence and played a huge part in two World Wars. The magnificent vessels which slid down the slipways included two Ark Royal aircraft carriers and the second Mauretania, the largest ship to be built in England at that time. Maritime historian Harry McLeish served at the yard for 45 years, advancing from boilermaking in the engine shop to the submarines' drawing office and engineering manager. During that time he was involved in the construction of many famous ships and submarines including the Thetis, Revenge, Renown, Coventry, Liverpool and Edinburgh. A proud Lairdsman, Harry talks about the ships, characters and legends of Cammell Laird. This special publication recounts the history of an enterprise whose giant hangar still stands as a memorial to the magic and memories of an industry that made the River Mersey world-famous. 'Cammell Laird - the Inside Story' is the most comprehensive magazine ever produced about the iconic Merseyside shipbuilders, featuring rare archive images. This is Harry's story and the incredible story of Cammell Laird. Please note this is an 84 page bookazine special.
