Folks:
The above vessel has been driving me mad for ages. Anyone any clues about her details. She was a tanker of some sort, couldn't have been more than 200 tons or so, and was around during the 50s.

Thanks for that. It could indeed be the one I'm after. It was under repair at S.P. Austins at Sunderland during 1957.
