Comments:
I seem to remember we had these on the Tug funnels back in 1976 think they were made and painted by the late Harry Berry. Was there no end to his talents.

Talented indeed! Do you know what it's made of? Fibreglass, like his 'headstone' for Betty Corrigall?

Alan I mind Harry making the coat of arms for the Sheriff Court tae go above the door, Harry was very proud to have done such a important thing, and as Harry said "Good lord man its the place that all of us must respect at all times".

I think you may find he made all these originals.

Harry lived by a strong moral code always, a man the like of which you are lucky to meet in a lifetime.

Yes Ian, they were made of fibreglass.
