Greetings All

Can anyone remember the date that the Labrador was refitted in Germany?

I am trying to date some old negatives and half way through the roll are a few shots of the Labrador in bits.

If anyone can remember dates for the following it would also help

M5 in Ancona, Italy
M4 in London after the Ultraseis refit


The Seaway Labrador in Bremerhaven

Hola Ian,

The Seaway Labrador was in Bremerhaven in February 1991 and emerged from the refit as the Simon Labrador.
You should be able to confirm this by asking the Kwitung Man, as I suspect that he still has all the receipts.


Pacific Horizon up the Thames.

Hola Ian,

The Pacific Horizon was in the Thames either February or March 1988. I wasn't there myself, I was at the refit in Immingham then I went down to Poole where the Seaway Labrador required adjustments to its Magnavox.
Simon Frobisher might be able to assist as I beleive that he knows where the commemorative plaque went.

If you need the date to be more precise then I'll have to dig deeper into the archives.
