Does anyone know when she finally went to the breakers and where?
I have fond memories of this great old Vessel, where we had to get out the anchor for docking, as there were no fancy bow pushes to make things easy.

Hi,

I have been told that during 1976 she was used in the making of the film "A Bridge too far".

Is anyone able to confirm this?

I'll ask some of the crew on my current ship. Many of them were in the company at the time.

She went to Turkish breakers in 2003.

As far as I know she was involved in transporting the vehicles used in the movie.

There is also some very interesting info on the train ferries in Dover on the Dover Ferry Photos forum, including mention of the Cambridge Ferry:
