M.V City of Athens

6th February 2013, 10:57
I'm trying to find any information on the M.V City of Athens between the years 1970-1976. My father was a Donkey Greaser until his death on board the ship in 1976 when it was docked in Portugal. I'm hoping to get photos, stories or anything about the ship or even him and his death.

Do you mean City of Athens which was on charter to Ellerman Lines?
If so I have a photo of her.

That's the right ship thank you I don't suppose you know anything else about the ship or the crew or even where I can get photos of on board it?
