Hi Shipmates:

Anyone know anything about these vessels?

"Trishna" (1916; 168grt) steam barge owned by Lever Bros (?) encountered "Ericbank" (1944; 7274 grt) of Bank Line, being manoeuvred by twin screw tug "MSC Panther (1950, 154 grt) owned by canal company. There was a slight collision between "MSC Panther" and "Trishna", but the hull of the latter came into contact with one of the propellers of the tug, was holed and subsequently sank.

Ericbank

The Liberty ship ERICBANK (ex Samveron) was purchased by the Bank line in 1947, and sold in 1959 to the Chinese, becoming the Nan Hai 146 for almost 20 years.

They were ' white crews' in the Bank Line and I had a friend who was 2/0 there for a while. See the snap below.
Cheers/Alan Rawlinson. (not related, as far as I know!)

Thanks for the response chaps.

Nice photo, Alan.

I have been digging into the Admiralty Court on the accident.

Although this was not a serious accident, as maritime casualties go, it does seem to have contributed significantly to liability law.

Apparently the (outward bound) Ericbank and tugs had been "holding up" waiting to pass an inward bound tanker at Ellesmere Port Engine Room records show: all stopped for 16 minutes.

Eddy, do you know anything of the Lever Bros barge fleet? I am trying to find a (steam days) picture of the Trishna or one of her sisters. Preceding Trishna up the canal was the barge, Agnes and following was the barge, Lobol.


With Thanks, Shipmates.

Regards

MervR
