My father was Junior Engineer on Potaro from 45 - 46 or 47. My sister is currently scanning his diary and we're researching the ship and where it went. We know it was sold to a Greek company in 65 and re-named Aristipos, and from there we think it was sold for scrap in 1970.

I know it's a long way back, but it would be great to hear from any crew members, or family of crew members. Any photos would also be nice to see. There seems to be 3 or 4 photos of her on the internet, I attach a couple of my father from late 45 or early 46. Unfortunately my father died in 1973 when my sister and myself were very young.

His name was William Jones. Thanks!
