HI. Anyone know the name of this ship . I beleave she was Russian, and came to greaf after a bump in the Thames I remember she had a deck gargo of double decker busses on they stayed sticking striaght out from the deck after she layed over . I was on a Jamaica run at the time and got a photo of her about once a month until they got her up , i heard she later broke away from her tugs in the Biscay and sank this was in the mid 60's
