At the moment we are negotiating a short film of Boys from the Mars taking part in a gymnastics display at Dens Park (Gordon would say the "Mighty Dens Park, scene of famous European and domestic excellent football". I only say Dens Park because I'm from the other side of the Great Divide. Shame about Lochee United tonight, but they have done Lochee and dormitory town Dundee proud.)

We had an exciting email at the weekend from http://www.trainingships.royalnavy.co.uk/mars_m.htm who have an audio recording of an ex-Mars boy recounting his time aboard the ship and possibly more material.

We will keep you updated when information arrives.

If you have any information or photographs of relatives on the Mars, please send them to us for inclusion on the site.
