Just finished - HM Submarine Holland I - made from a plastic knitting needle and plastic card. It isn't perfect - but then my eyesight isn't either - but it makes for an interesting model of the Royal Navy's first submarine. It's only 56mm (2.5in) long - and the camera makes it look worse - honest! Here it is next to a Russian Typhoon.... More photos - including 'build' photos - here. Ken
HMS Timbertown was an internment camp in Holland during the first world war for 1500 sailors of the Royal Naval Division There is a television programme still available, and for a while yet, on the BBC iPlayer (27/02/2015). http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04kg1q1 The programme is in Gaelic, but don't worry there are English sub-titles. It's rather interesting and describes some of what happened to these sailors. Little known facts such as how sailors had UK leave but had to return to their Dutch prison are dealt with. If you don't normally watch the BBC Alba service, (and I can't say as I do), have a look.
