Does anyone know any history of these tankers? I think they were owned by Eagle Oil. I have a picture of the San Felix but I can't find anything on the San Megros. My father was on the San Felix in 1951 and on the San Megros in 1953.

From Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, Susijon.
Good to have you onboard.
Like Henk, I too cannot find any information on a tanker named 'San Megros'.

Hello SusiJon
There was a Liberty ship named SAMNEGROS - she became TITANBANK of Bank Line.. Check spelling of the name you have and are there any other details?

The log book says San Megros and my Dad says it was a tanker. I'll check with him again and come back to you.
Thanks for the info.
