It does for me, copy & paste worked, quite a unique photo, thanks for posting. Odd hue to hull colours probably due to sun light, only three of them though.

If my memory serves me well The PE was laid up at Spillers Quay in Newcastle.

I served on PE during layup at Newcastle Quays from April to August 1971, after delivery to new Owners at Piraeus, took the Durban from Amsterdam to Piraeus. Both deliveries with Capt D.H.Morgan.

The Old Man that took the PE and Durban to Piraeus would that be Tom Morgan [ aka Twitter ]. If so he ended up at the BOT in Hull doing SES and Life boat exams. He was also on the Board of the Hull Trinity House in the 80's.

The "missing" sister, the C o Port Elizabeth, was indeed laid up in Newcastle, on the Town Quay (not Spillers, where they had normally berthed). Whilst there, there was no Master on board, but the Chief Officer Bill Harvey was in charge. She was the first of the four to be laid up, the remaining three going, instead, to Amsterdam. The last to arrive there was the C o York, with myself as Third mate. Our arrival there also marked the retirement of Capt. Tyrrell.
