Help Wanted
Any detail and image of vessel M/T Storheim,once again think she was a Scandinavion Build 1951, became R W Miller in the early 1960s and worked on the Australian coast for a number of years.

I guessed this one would be coming!-- obviously from;
n July 1964 Miller won approval to import the tankers, Bj÷rdholm (Millers McArthur) and Storheim (R. W. Miller), on condition that he contract for two tankers with Australian shipyards within a year and for a third tanker within two years, and that he place a written undertaking with the collector of customs.

Here she is in 1951(looks very similar to the aeial view of Bjorgholm to me):

Getting close to finalising detail on this vessel Thanks Dave for your input.
Dave in the image just above Storheim looks quite small she always looked a bit bigger in my memory what do you think.

Ulf. I have been able to glean quite alot from that site did have a limited knowledge of R W Miller through their connection with Ampol ete in the 1970s.Now have images and detail of all the tanker fleet that they had from the early 1960s - to the mid 1980s until the Howard Smith takeover, thanks once again to members for their help also.
