I remember the "Royston Grange" although I had nothing to do with Houlder Bros. I was on board the "Margo" a Greek owned tramp under the Liberian flag. We were around the river Plate area just before the tragedy and I had quite a long communication on 512 KHz with the R/O a couple of days before. I couldn't believe it when I heard on the World Service of the collision. If I remember correctly they collided with a tanker and the gas from the tanker filled the accommodation of the Royston Grange and exploded killing everybody on board whereas on the tanker there was not one casualty.

Hi arcticpuffin.
If my memory is not failing, I remember the tanker involved in the collision with "Royston Grange" was the "Tien Chee", liberian flagged and chinese crew.
Although the worst consequences were suffered by the "Royston Grange", to my knowledge, there were also dead crewmembers on board the tanker.
Kind regards.
