Ruud , the photo shows a fairly modern ship, I am sure a 1941 built vessel would not have looked so modern, perhaps there were 2 Hazlebanks.
PS Have you a photo of ss sheldrake o/no 180609 built 1944 in germany. ?

The picture is of the Hazelbank but it is the ship built in the mid 60's not 1941. This ship was a sister of the Nairnbank (1966) and a number of others built by H&W. I have a foto of the Hazelbank tied up alongside the Nairnbank
in Durban, and as soon as I can work out how to scan it and upload it I will post it.

I was the first mate on the Pikebank; I stood by in Doxfords when all of them were built; 3 at Pallion in the dock, 3 at Deptford on the slip. Ruddbank became the ITF's Global Mariner in their FOC campaign and was sunk in a collision in South America. They were the best ships Bank Line ever built...
