I think your enquiry should be about Jedforest, Sam. P&O's tankers were named after British Fox Hunts. There were two named Jedforest, delivered in 1972 and 1998. Which are you interested in?

Sam,

I used to a lot of work with coastal ships way back in the early 80,s - they all ran to the Channel Islands - with bulk cargo's. La Pia, Carrigrenon, Courier, Sea Trent, and various others.
