Hi shipmate17,

That's a good shot of the "Clyde" in QEII dock. When was it taken? Probably early 1980's as she has a rust coloured deck. When these ships (Esso Mersey, Esso Clyde & Esso Severn) first entered service in the mid 1970's having been built at Cammell Lairds, the deck and equipment was light grey. Showed up any rust streaks very quickly, but more importantly also showed up any oil. Chris Allport
