Has anyone any information or photos on the 'Empire Cricketer'? My father served on her many years ago and I'm trying to get photos of all his ships. I think she may have beome the 'Soren Rask', but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the information. That puts the 'Soren Rask' theory to bed, though I remember my father and I visiting her at Shoreham and he was pretty convinced it was Empire Cricketer - maybe a near sister?

Hope someone may come up with a pic.
