Stumps, yes.
EVA PERON became URUGUAY. 17 de OCTOBRE became LIBERTAD.
Cheers John.

Thanks , Kyrenia , all coming back now . They ,E.L.M.A., Buenos Aires , changed all the names when Peron was kicked-out.

When I was working on Y and Z berths, I used to go on these vessels (for cigarettes). When they changed names, it took me a while to figure out that there were two ships, not four.
