I was on the " Scottish Wasa " Ex Iron Crown , when we were in a collision with the German freezer boat "Rheinelander" in September 1976 . This was on the River Scheldt I think we had a football match against them a few days before . They had oranges at half time .... we had Tennants served by the 2nd Engineers wife (Colin Wright?) and the 2nd Mates wife (Dave and Elizabeth?) Then spent about a month in Antwerp drydock . Will try to upload photos of damage , but my scanner is not too good .
