If you are still looking for a photo of the Vestra, I have one. My father was an engineer on that vessel in the 1950's in her days carrying paper pulp from Sewden to Aberdeen and coal from Methel to Sweden.
I will send you a copy if you give me your address.

Ahoy Stewart,
Once again, I have edited out an email address posted on an Open Forum. This is not a good idea as, although with the best of intentions, it may result in some unwelcome mail arriving in your Inbox, and that's what you're not waiting for, isn't it?

Sorry to be so long replying but I am having two problems. 1. This web site is driving me nuts trying to find things, it seems to be the most needlessly complex web site I have ever come across. 2. My scanner is does not work with my new XP software so I will have to get a new one. I will get back to you when I get the above sorted.
