I'm doing a project about the naval dockyard in rosyth. anyone got any memories/thoughts about the base prior to it closing in the 90's.

Other info ie ships based there etc would also be useful


It's still open but desolate (very small ship's company) & the surrounding grounds are now housing estates.

The old "factory" (tiff school) now a car park / sea cadet drill shed.

A few decommissioned boats in the dockyard. Still used by the odd ship in refit.

The other day I found a laminated 'radiation leakage' advice card stating the actions to follow in the 'unlikely' event of a radiation leak by a boat up there.

I think it was issued to all drafted there.

PM address and you can have it

Sure you can trawl these pages somewhere for more info, I know I posted somewhere..!

I remember fking 'bright eyes' was in the charts when I was there...!
