Ship Photographs

I've managed to get a photo of every ship I sailed on in my 11 year sea career, except three! Can anyone help with the following:-
"British Endurance" - BP Tankers -Apr 1956 to July 1956.
"Avisbank" - Purvis SS Co. Nov 1956 to Dec 1956.
"El Mirlo" - Lobitos Oil Co (managed by Regent Tankers) Aug 1957 to Sep 1957

They are not great photos, but http://www.photoship.co.uk/ has shots of all three ships. It's a starting point anyway.

With reference to "British Endurance" try contacting BP Shipping as they are usually quite amenable to supplying photos of their vessels.

Many thanks, what a great site! Apart from "El Mirlo" they're quite good photos, and I'll have a bash at enhancing that.
I also downloaded one of "Ariguani" (Banana boat) since it was much better than my existing.
Many thanks, again
Trevor
