New Book  - HMS Conway: Yesterday & Today In Photos x
By Alfie Windsor (64-68)

This book is a companion volume to Alfie's much praised history of the ship. It is an A4 format, 226 page picture history with 715 photos covering every facet of the ship’s life. Each topic is described and illustrated with original black and white period photos and comparison colour photos showing the same scenes today. Topics include:
-    Conway places including the Rock Ferry, Bangor and Plas Newydd moorings and landing stages, and the Sailors’ Home.
-    The three ships with the last described deck by deck including the incredibly detailed deck plans produced in 1953 with the viewpoint of every historic photo overlaid.
-    All Conway’s buildings and shore facilities including the Rock Ferry and Bangor playing fields and sanatoriums, the camp (including three surviving huts), all the buildings at Plas Newydd including the dock, and the two Conway Chapels.
-    Major events like the dry docking and figurehead masting in 1938, the transit to Bangor in 1941, the loss, wreck and fire, and the tents in 1953.
-    A modern tour along the Strait from the Britannia Bridge to “PD”.
The history of the ship’s numerous ensigns, crests and badges is also described along with images of them all. Finally there is an 18 page, detailed inventory of over 450 Conway artefacts and their whereabouts including major relics, silver, ship artefacts, works of art, boats, displays, archives and much, much more. If you wondered what happened to anything connected with Conway the answer is almost certainly here.

A book that draws you in from page 1, is difficult to leave but can be dipped into at any random page selected. Another triumph! Colin Stopher (62-65).

Enjoyed the book no end. Phil Neal (61-64).
A painstaking selection of photographs likely to correct illusions as well as refresh memories. Like Alfie’s earlier faithful history, this pictorial saga might enable differing generations of cadets to glean 
      perceptions of differing chapters in the changing history of an incomparable ship.
