Gee thanks Jim, I can barely see the ship behind her! I agree she's a BP Tanker Co. vessel, a steamer by the looks of it. The funnel shape makes me think she's one of the 1962 52/54 thousand tonners with the bridge amidships. So British Hussar, Bombardier or Cavalier. This is my first instinct without "stanchion counting" so I'll wait to see if John agrees! I don't think we'll get further than that even if I'm right.
Regards,
Alastair

Stanchions? What stanchions??? Can't see a thing. Have to agree with Alastair though. With that tall funnel & a midships section, it can only be one of those 3.
Kind regards,
John.

Hi Brian Sailed on the Ceuta Many Years Ago, On Charter To Gulf Oil. I Suppose She Went To The Breakers. Nice Picture.
Kind Regards.
