Hi Dave. Nice picture, I seem to remember her having an explosion, more than likely wrong.

Janathull,
I can't find anything about an explosion on the Flag. However, one of her sisters - the Crusader - suffered an explosion in Visakhapatnam Roads in June 1972. She was badly damaged & after transferring her cargo to the Border Terrier, she was sold for scrap.
Kind regards,
John.

I seem to remember that the Flag blew an hole in her side sometime in the 60s early 70s. As I remember it she went to the Tyne for repairs. The memory is not so good these days. Regards Jan.
