Sad end for Strathesk.

Always was a fan of the Strath"E"s, having done my first trip on the Stratheden. Sad to see that the Strathesk came to grief off Singapore in 2009 as mv Danoosh of Iranian shipping company.
Edit: Would appear it was repaired but soon afterwards broken up at Alang. So maybe not the end for Strathesk, but didn't do much to extend its life!

I was on the Esk in 80/81 before moving to the Startherrol for what was to become my last trip.
Terribly sad to note that all the ships I sailed on in that era have gone off to the wreckers.
