Model of the Ship

Large and very impressive model of the ship made in Vietnam. Many OCs have bought one and been very pleased with it. They also sell glass display cases. There are a few inconsistancies in the model e.g. the gun ports are just open holes and some of the blocks are not to scale but this remains a magnificent model. http://www.woodenmodelboat.com/model/woodpro/all/hms_conway.htm

Photos for sale

http://www.20thcenturyimages.co.uk/trolleyed/7/27/1195/   This is supposedly a photo of the ship at Rock Ferry in the 1940s. Trouble is she left Rock Ferry in 1941 and by 1939 her white lines had beeen painted out .The figurehead was masted in 1938 so the image is 38-39

Video - Seasoned Sailors (Set 4 No.2)

A video in the Seasoned Sailors series features Old Conway R. W. (Bob) Timbrell (1935-1937).

He left Vancouver in 1935 to find his way in the naval world and first went to the training ship HMS Conway in the Mersey. The video has brief background shots of Conway.

During WW II he was given command of a hired yacht (Llanthonthy) and sent to the beaches of Dunkirk to rescue allied troops. He became the first Canadian naval officer to be decorated in WW II and was awarded the DSC "for good services in the withdrawal of Allied Armies from the beaches of Dunkirk". He gives a gripping account of his three trips to the evacuation beaches. The Dunkirk film coverage is impressive.

Seasoned Sailors: "Rear Admiral R.W. Timbrell CMM DSc MID CD RCN (Retired)". Set 4 No.2. Video running time 52 minutes.

Produced by:
