Quotes

Joe Drummond: But you're working on the Clyde, boy, and that's an honour in itself if you'd the sense to see it. Ship-building started here more than a hundred years ago. Take away the Clyde and Britain would be sunk in any war we ever had to fight. This is the cradle of the craft my lad, all about you.
