T.V. Morar and M.V. Arisaig

I sailed with both these from Port Talbot as Jnr. and 4th Eng back in 1960.
there is a photo of the Arisaig on the site but I would like a photo of the TV Moorar. Can any one point me in the righr direction?

I mentioned this vessel, as GTV (Gas Turbine Vessel) in another thread....as one of the small Port Talbot sized Ore Carriers she was the bane of the charterers BSC ( and owners) lives as the gasifiers were somewhat unreliable..... We tried to keep her as close to home as possible but remember once we had to send her to Vitoria in Brazil, a sea journey for most vessels of 18 days each way in those days.....she was away for best part of 2 months.

During one period of real problems she was scheduled into Fords at Dagenham and was reported as passing Dover Lights something like 6times in one day.....the tide in the Channel was stronger than she was.

Morar was the only ore carrier to pass Cape Wrath 3 times in one day.
