Excel Boatshow 10/01/2004

Met Mr Shackell at Stratford then off to the Excel Boatshow, we met Matthew on the way in. He got us in for free as he was stationed on the HMS Northumberland that was moored in the dock, and was on display to tourists. We had a good look round at the show then were given and extensive tour of the Northumberland, including lots of areas that the public don't get to see, including the Petty Officers mess were we sank a few beers with the guys. Off then in the evening taking in a few beers in the Docklands, then we headed on to shoreditch before catching the nightbus home.
