HMS Glasgow Affiliation

Our association was invited by BAE Systems to be affiliated with the new type 26 frigate HMS Glasgow being built at Govan. On Thursday 28th ten of our members were invited to go to BAE Systems in Govan for an introduction to the new build and to view the work carried out so far on HMS Glasgow. We were given a talk and virtual walk through of the ship by the senior production manager Dave Skinner. We were then taken to the construction section to see how they cut the steel and form it to the various shapes required. We will be invited back to view the different stages of the build. Our Chairman Kenn McKinnon Presented Nicola Woolfries, Communications Advisor with a plaque from the City of Glasgow RNA and pointed out that the crest was the crest used in all ships named Glasgow.
