Belated happy birthday Chertsey...
Amy and James celebrated Willow's birthday at the weekend, yesterday being the 79th anniversary of its first health registration.
Chertsey is a couple of years younger, celebrating its 77th birthday on January 29th. This is the date given in Alan Faulkner's book which I have always assumed to be when the boat was handed over by Harland and Wolff to GUCCCo, although I realise I don't actually know exactly what it signifies.
