The Antarctic Survey ship JOHN BISCOE seen alongside berths 20/21 in the Empress Dock in the Port of Southampton's Eastern Docks.

The Antarctic Survey ships tended to use berths within the Empress Dock usually berths 22/23 and during the 1970/80's berths 26/27 but on this occasion she is at berth 20 loading what appears to be the large box as seen on the earlier uploaded photo of her departing the Empress Dock.

The former Ocean Terminal at berths 43/44 in the Ocean Dock is clearly visible.

Im pretty sure that this picture verifies what i thought in the original picture that Gijsha posted of the John Biscoe, that the large crates contained an aircraft, as it looks like the floats for the aircraft are sitting on the quay. For certain the crate cannot be very heavy as it appears that they are lifting it on board using a dock crane and these only had a SWL of 5 ton or so.
