a nice shot - MYRTIDIOTISSA had been owned since 1972 by Z. & G. Halcoussis Co. Ltd of Piraeus; she sailed from London on 10/12/78 bound for Dar-es-Salaam via Aden.

MYRTIDIOTISSA was laid up at Galaxidi on 21/5/82, being renamed TORNADO at the end of 1984 for a last loaded voyage to Hodeidah, sailing from there on 24/2/85 for Gadani Beach near Karachi to be broken up

Small world bobs. the difference between yourself and I is that you took so many more than I have. Oh to have the chance to go back and do things differently. I think the main issue with me in the 80s was cost. Digital has made it so much cheaper.
