Do you have a larger scan of her at all? My cousin was on her & has been trying to find a decent photo of the old lady.

Hi Medway,
I served on the Caldy in 1982 for a couple of months when she came to Portsmouth following her lay up at Chatham. I'm afraid this is the only picture I have of her.

I remember this as a tank cleaner vessel at Chatham and i would go alone side with my fuel barge 1504(F) once a year for a tank clean. There was two fuel barges in Chatham 1506(F) that was diesel all year the 1504(F) was FFO all winter then diesel in the summer hence the tank clean. This photo brings back some very happy memories of very happy days
