Bolbec

Have been trying to get hold of a photo of the Bolbec, she was owned by Harries Bros. of Swansea. I sailed on board as 2nd Mate in the 1950's, mainly coal out of South Wales and pit props back. Then she was chartered to SNC a French company, usually coal out from the UK to French ports and iron ore from Caen t5o Flixborough. Good old times.
Cheers,
Glan

I know this is an old thread but doyou have any info on the Bolbec mid 50s, my Father in Law was onboard when she was forced to dock whilst carying Iron Ore, was caught in a storm and listed badly due to uneven load. He's not sure where it docked. I think it was his last trip, he was around 15yo and quit when they returned to Swansea.
