Hi Ruud, Many thanks for the pic of Argosity. After looking for yearsI now have four pics. All the fleet lists I've seen of Everard ships, I have never seen her name. I wonder why!
all the best.

She's listed in my 2/6 copy of Ian Allan's ABC "Coastal Cargo Ships", fifth edition, which is undated, but I think I bought it about forty-five years ago.

1941 877GT 221' x 31' 9 1/2 knots Steam Reciprocating (Aft)

Pages and pages of old line British companies and their ships: looking at books like this really makes you realize what has been lost.
Listed for Everard alone are over one hundred vessels.

The book Everard of Greenhithe by Ken Garrett has a photo and history of her.

This will save you another walk to the library,besides it's Ascension Day, but indeed as Baltic Wall mentioned above this book of Everard of Geenhythe is a must for all "Yellow Peril's" lovers as a matter of fact.
