Not a cargo ship but the R.N Survey vessel HMS CHALLENGER in Dry Dock at what could be Gibraltar.
CHALLENGER Built at Chatham Dockyard and commissioned 15 March 1932
Cir***navigated the Globe in her 50-53 Commission
De-Commissioned in 1954 and Broken up at Dover.

I guessed it was Gibraltar mainly because of the depth of the drydock. The deepest dock I have ever been in and had to climb up and down several times a day. Anyone know why it was dug so deep? I did not think Gib had an unusually large a tidal range. They have the architects drawings of the dock in the offices. I should have asked the question then.
