Hi Christopher,

At this stage I cannot find a decent picture of her, but in passing Riverina was part of a three ship order at the South Korean yard of Daesun. These were 9,200 dwt bulk-carriers destined for use by Furness Withy (Australia) Pty Ltd., She was launched 24-06-76 and handed over in 1977.

The three ships were registered to Dee Navigation Ltd., which was in fact Empire Transport Company Ltd., and changed it name in 1975 in the Houlders re-organisation.

Riverina was sold in 1981 and re-named Falkon, then in 1989 Apollonian Faith – she foundered on 7th November 1991

Hi Chris,

I have taken the liberty of making an edit to the title of your thread, in the hope that stands out and it may stir a memory with one of the others.

Good luck.
