Default Segelschuleschiff GORCH FOCK

Hi Folks:

I couldn't pass this up...at a German flea market especially since I bought it from the Naval vet the ship is a sailing (Tall Ship) school ship "GORCH FOCK" which is currently in dry-dock....built in 1958. The cap and whistle....

The cap is 6/71 (Jun 1971) Sz: 57 white cove Jun 1973 Sz: 58

Whistle: stamped VI/75...so I think Jun 1975

I have always like the Tall Ships.....when these types of ships are in my area....I see them. I've seen the tall ships in Boston harbor and Tacoma. These type of ships are impressive

We sure had some good-looking money back then. Makes me a bit nostalgic...
