As Dave may or may not know, I work at the Tata Steel Dalzell works in Motherwell.

Nothing particularly exciting, but the reason I post this here is that it's part of this:

The battleship Mikasa, preserved as a museum ship in Yokosuka. If I'd known about that, I'd have tried to make a visit when I was in Japan.

Oh i didn't know that, i have been to kure, to the wartime museum with lots of Yamato info, and nearby when they had the 1:1 model used for the Japanese Movie.

I will surely go there when i have the chance.
