Remember seeing her on the Thames when new, certainly brightened the place up a bit.

Yes, we caused quite a stir when we went to Tilbury to discharge wheat from Canada. There was a big confrontation as I insisted we do not use tugs to berth or depart. It fooled the PLA as the captain used to be pilot exempt when I sailed into the Thames on a frequent basis when in Robertsons of Glasgow. That was before I immigrated to Canada and became a Canadian citizen
