These photographs are of Cariad during her around-the-world
voyage from 1952 to 1953. They were given to us by Vernon
Penrose who was a crew member of Cariad during this voyage.
We are deeply endebted to Vernon Penrose and his daughter,
Kym Clayton, who scanned and e-mailed these photographs to
us. Thank you very much, Vernon and Kym, and thanks to
the Internet for making such things possible in the present.
