special time for PSPS members was when Waverley started to make her visits away
from the Firth of Clyde to other parts of the UK from 1977 onwards. Waverley found
many friends at this time and truly united members of the Society and found a
whole new generation of enthusiasts who enjoyed nothing more than a good day out
on a paddle steamer viewing the coastline of the UK.
Four lucky PSPS members
paid to sail with Waverley as she came south for the first time in 1978. They
are (left to right) Peter Stocker, Basil Craggs, Margaret Russell and John Grant.
