I think she's the 'Grit' of 1958, a tanker of 2,739GT, 310' x 45', diesel, single screw, 10 1/2 knots.
She may have been built by the Goole Shipbuilding & Reparing Co., but I'm not certain.

"Grit" is a traditional Everard name and there have probably been half a dozen in their fleet.

Hi Billmaca
Looks very much like the AQUEITY in her early days with the Co. Later the Jolly Boat stowed amidships in the photo was carried on the foredeck.

this photo was taken from the Esso Lambeth "Fawly to Tilbury" but there was a custums launch following us up river as he had hailed us downriver as to where we had come from, he made the mistake of taking the answer from aft . and some nut shouted Dunkirk, he was not very happy when the bridge gave him the truth

Or the "Integrity" ? I.m new at this and grabbin' straws ! But I started out back in 1944 on the "Annuity" Not having any sea exp. caused me great discomfort and much hilarity for those sailing on that little thing ! No ! washing ones testicles and private parts with Lifebuoy soap in a bucket of sea water, on deck, did not alleviate the suffering. I also sailed on the "Aqueity" ( A Chant),( Mined,sank off the Scheldt ) the "Superiority" the "Aridity " The "Frank.M." and a couple of other coasters before I discovered the tropics and realised that the north sea was really for the birds. As you all know there's nothing nicer than sailing on the Indian Ocean coasts of the middle east in January, Oops this was to be a kwik reply ! Sorry guys.

Hi, I have a photos of the Acuity (ex Empire Tedship 1946), Amity (ex Empire Tendassa 1945) Antonality, Austility, Arduity, Atonality, all black overside, The photo I have of the Alignity has grey overside seems identical build to the one in your photo. But of course there could have been others. Ken.

Thats definitely not the same craft ,she seems a bit modern for the time of the one on the photo , 1960/61 I've been told by some of the ex coast lads that there were a few ships named "Crit" in the Everard fleet,

It looks like this thread is going round in circles. Bruce Carson posted back in February that GRIT *not* CRIT is a traditional Everard name with up to half a dozen ships bearing that name over the years.

The ship in my photo on the ibiblio site is a 499 gt dry cargo ship built in 1976 and the last Everard vessel to bear the name GRIT, so obviously not the vessel in question.

Hi Billmacca,
I think Lamptrimmer's idea that it might be the Aqueity is near the mark as it is certainly not the Grit, she was a tanker of 2739 tons and built in 1958.The Aqueity was only some 891 tons and was built in 1946 which would seem to fit the picture.
Although I never sailed on any of the Everard ships (apart from sea trials etc.)I spent my five years apprenticeship in marine engineering working on many of them, as my shipyard in Great Yarmouth was part of the Everard company.

I well remember the launching of the Sonority and Severity in the early 1950's, we were given time off to watch them go down the 'ways'.
As young apprentice's we were given all the menial jobs ie. overhauling deck and boiler valves and on the tankers working in the cargo tanks, deep tanks, pumproom and double bottoms. The pumproom was a not one of the best places especially when they had been carrying molasses, we would be paid and extra two pence an hour for pumproom or CSA (confined space allowance)
To this day I do not think there is a colder place than on a dead ship in dry dock in the middle of winter. Happy days!.
I have a list of over 100 Everard ships from 1926 to 1958 giving their date, gross tons, length, beam, speed and engines.
The attached picture is of me aged 16 with the prop of the tanker Anteriority of 1954.
Best regards Toby T

Still looks the AQUEITY to me. She is the only one of that class I can recall with two masts and the galley abaft the funnel also an "open " monkey island unlike the ALIGNITY
Best Regards to all

I have posted some documents and pics of my Dad, John McLaughlin, a Donegal man who sailed with Everard in the mid to late 1950s in various vessels including the Anonity, Atonality and Antiquity.

If anyone knew him, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Here is a link to the pictures on Flickr:
