Searching for a photo

I am looking for a photo of the 1952 tanker "Wheatfield" owned by Eden Tankers.
( or Gretafield" a sistership )
I sailed in her out of Hong Kong in 1965 after she had be re-named "Sea Jasper".

I would like to use the photo as the basis for some artwork. She was the only tanker I sailed in.

Thanks for the help.

Tony Mortimer

Ahoy,
Her launching was on 29-12-1951 and delivered at 19-05-1952.
Found a poor shot in an old booklet[Hunting?],but nevertheless better then nothing.

Tony,
I haven't got one of the Wheatfield but have two reasonable ones of the Gretafield. If you'd like copies PM me with your e-mail address and I'll send them to you.
Regards,
Alastair
