On Ebay a posting captioned "Yarmouth Hill" has appeared today.

It looks like a standard Empire B type. I'm picking it has to be either CHARMOUTH HILL (Empire Peak) or, less likely, LULWORTH HILL (Empire Mandarin). Anyone care to take a pick (or otherwise)???

definitely Charmouth Hill, as you say, ex Empire Peak. A relative of mine joined her brand new in Grays yard Hartlepool. I wanted a photo of the ship for him for his eighty th birthday, could get many, including this one, in later lives, but had to go to National Maritime Museum to get one as he knew the ship.
