Hi Neil
A fine looking ship, sadly close to the end of an era.
Cheers and thanks for posting.

Originally Memnon, she was built by Vickers in Newcastle in 1959.
She was renamed Stentor in 1975, and transferred to S.E.Asia-Australia service.
In 1977 she was transferred to Elder dempster and became Owerri.
In 1977 she was sold to Greeks and became Europe.
In 1988 she was renamed Primus and scrapped at Alang.
I was JOS in her on voyage#2 from Birkenhead to Shanghai, calling at all the usual BF ports.

Nice picture, demonstrates why the ships were nicknamed scrubbing brushes :)
