many thanks Lefteris. Your interest has prompted me to post one of my photographs of ARAMON sailing from Birkenhead on a perfect summer day in May 1978. ARAMON's call at Port Harcourt was actually in 1977. She sailed from Piraeus on 19th May, calling at Ceuta (presumably for bunkers) on 1st June. By 11th January 1978 she was taking a new cargo from Antwerp to Chalkis via Ipswich.

best regards. Malcolm.
