Not the best of pictures but one of an Ellerman's ship. It is either the City of Hull, City of London or City of Liverpool on the Canadian service. Built in 1970/71 they were of 9,767gt.

I did three trips on the Hull, her maidan voyage almost round the world, flew us back from St John as she joined the CCL service I then came back and did two more before I left the company. The Liverpool I had on charter under her new (Greek ?) owners out of the St Lawrence/Great lakes in 1987. The London I bumped into a few times around the Cape but since my sailing days never saw her again.
Attached a photo I found of the Hull.

Was City of Canterbury a Sister? She was the 1st ship I had been on, for a good look around, when on a ships visit from Gravesend Sea School. I think she was in Milwall Docks, brand new Jan '77?

No the Canterbury was of a different class. I sailed on her in '78, my first trip.
