Does anyone have information regarding a Houlder Brothers ship that sank off Argentina and Uraguy in 1972. Thanks, Roddy

Collision of Royston Grange with Tien Chee 11 May 1972

There was a horrific collision in River Plate between Royston Grange (British Flag) and Tanker Tien Chee (Liberian flag), in Canal Punta Indio between bouys no. 15 and 16. All the lives on Royston Grange (73) were lost and 8 crew of Tien Chee. The tanker Tien Chee was inbound and Royston Grange was outbound. The cause of the collision was attributed to the bank suction effect that made Royston Grange to veer to the starboard and collide with Tien Chee with an angle of 40 degrees. Omar

Hi Omar, if you read through some of the earlier Houlder threads, you will find many references to that dreadful disaster. There are several ex. Houlder employees on this forum who lost good friends and shipmates. For some it is still an emotional memory.

Search the forums using Royston Grange as the key words, Omar.
You will find all the details.
The search forums button is at the top of the page just above the time.

Kris
