Hi I am looking for a photo (or other image) of the RESIDU which
sank 18-June-1992 in Liverpool Bay northwich for Drogheda.
She was built Appingedam 1964 (399tg) and named Twebro.

Thanks - this forum is efficient!
I am actually looking for images of other vessels lost in Liverpool Bay -
but they are much older so less likely to be readily available - I will post
them in a day or so

If you Google ' Residu Twebro ' and go to the second site that comes up - Kustvaartforum , and scroll down past the grounded barge, there are some photos of the actual sinking, plus some excellent shots inside her wheelhouse.

I was on duty when the rescue of Residu's crew was co-ordinated by MRCC Holyhead.
We have a photograph of the vessel moments before she sank (taken from 22 Squadron RAF Valley's Wessex helicopter) on display in the MRCC.
The Master subsequently presented the MRCC with the ship's sextant to show his appreciation. (Thumb)

if i remember correctly the Master was Peter Whitehouse, he had a small ex german fishing boat he lived on in Charlestown harbour cornwall.
