I always liked this series of OCL ships-for container ships I thought they were quite good looking.I have a shot of JERVIS BAY which I took at her launch which I will show.

Jervis Bay built in Glasgow. Greatly delayed in completion but managed to open the container berth at Tilbury as the berth had been blocked due to stevedore strikes against containers.

For interest, this is the current Jervis Bay. Built in 1992, she is now part of Maersk Line and the only ship who's name does not include "Maersk".
