Does the Dredger SAND MOOR strike any bells with anyone? As a Sea Cadet in 1961 I spent an interesting half hour watching her come alongside in the East Dock in Cardiff. She could have been an ex-LST or something of that breed.
But she seemed to have Steam Reciprocating engines for ahead propulsion and Diesels for astern propulsion. As I remember she had a Black hull, her funnel was Black with a Blue top band. She had two Diesel exhausts aft of the funnel,so I assume she was a Twin screw ship. I was very intrigued with her and wish I had found out more about her at the time, but as a baby sea Cadet, I was very much in awe of big sailors!.

Thanks. Pete
