The Adrastus was operated by the Dutch arm of Blue Funnel. When she left drydock after a wash and a brush up, she went upriver towards Eastham.
A couple of months later, she passed us outward bound with a new name( I cant remember what) and she was painted in the colours of the Nigerian National Line.
