At a guess, this was taken around October 1976 when she was loading for the Persian Gulf. I was 4th E. O. on her at that time and the berth looks the same.
From Liverpool went to Middlesbro before sailing to Gulf.

Another Doxford vessel - I think most if not all Stricks ships had Doxfords?

Dox,
Most of them are listed as having Doxfords but some are listed as having engines by
Fairfield-Rowan Ltd. Would that be Doxfords under licence?

I don't know them to be a licencee, but they well could be? From my memory I think they all had Doxfords, LBD,s P's and J types. I sailed on two of Stricks ships and both ahd Doxfords, one an LDB, the other a Jtype ( Tabaristan - Stratharlic).
