My earlier information was a little incorrect in that the U boat captain was Gunther Hessler,who was the son in law of Karl Donitz. Karl Heinz Fritz was Captain when U107 was sunk in 1944.
I cannot throw any light on Carpentersrock.
regards Norman

Nigerian ship

During 1960s I worked as a rigger on the Nigerian ship OBA OVERAMI in Tilbury Docks...A few months later she was at Tilbury again with the name OBAN OVERAMWHEN,at least I was told it was the same ship...
I was told she was originally a Dutch owned ship and built in 1948 ...
Stan
I have a photo as OBA OVERAMI but do not know how to attach,.
