No doubt about it, the cradle in which RML 497, last surviving Fairmile motor launch, will travel to Hartlepool and the National Museum of the Royal Navy there, can only be described Aussie-style “a real beaut”! (See ‘Rock Your Baby’ blog.) But… now the WWII survivor must be got into it. Tricky. In charge of the operation to get 497 up to Hartlepool and then safely berthed there, is Sally Weston, Group Engineer at Robert Wynn and Sons (picture.) Here she’s helping to guide 497 safely in – a matter of both precision and muscle! Sally – always immaculate – exudes quiet confidence, calm and control as she supervises the loading of her precious charge onto the barge taking the Fairmile north. There were many unforeseeable difficulties, but she was unflappable as her delivery team overcame them, one by one.
