Hi, wow, i have searched this for a long long time, i almost got tears in my eyes when i see this.. wow.

My mothers grandpa were sailing this ship called Archibald Russell from the early 1900 to 1940 something.

His name was Forell in the last name, i dont remember his first name, but anyhow...he was sailing this ship around the world, he was a real "hard-one"...a real pirat.

He was living in Karlskrona in Sweden, and the story goes like this.."when every other ships is going in to shore, Forell is going out.

My mothers grandpa was building a modell of this ship, he gave it to my grandma, she gave it to me...and it still sails in my living-room, over those oceans of water.

Im sure he would be glad if he knew it.

If any one has some info of my old lost grandpa please mail me back, and if the webmaster wants a photo of the old modell from 1922 please tell, ill be glad to send one.
