Viking Raasay - info /fotos wanted

Hello
I am interested in finding about any info on the Field support vessel Viking Raasay. Especially any old photos of the vessel would be appreciated.
Only info i can find so far: Built circa 1983 as the Drive Supporter and at somepoint renamed Sira Supporter, prior to being renamed Raasay.
Any info welcome
Cheers
Fozzy

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire.
I'm sure the crew will come forward with some help.
Meanwhile find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.
