Everard incident at Sunderland

There must 1 or 2 people on SN who will remember an incident which happened I think in the late 50s. The weather was foul and one of the Everard Empire Fabrics (I think either Fixity or Firmity)...

Seems there was some sort of coming together between Evje and Dona Evgenia - but this was in 1960 and is probably not pertinent to this photo.

Dashwood was built by Crown's in 1946 and laid down as Empire Lambeth. You've got the SEGB flatiron by mistake.

I'm guessing this has to be HMS Berwick broken up in 1948. The only other cruisers broken up at Blyth post-WW2 are CERES, LEANDER, GLASGOW, PHOEBE, EURYALUS, SIRIUS
