Hi Argyll,
I, like yourself did not sail on her, believe she carried newsprint from
Sweden to the Thames.

The C/E on the Ormsary, the late Tom Law, was on her in the late
fifties, he spoke highly of her, the ER was a "good job".

Her regular schedule made all the difference.

Regards
Archie.

What do you mean "old age" , Kevin. You looked like a kid of 20 when I
last saw you and that's only about 15 years ago !.

I'm sure it is Argyll, I remember the ship and the Old Man's name - John Legg.

One of the tales was that she went down fairly slowly, so they all had time to abandon in the lifeboats, with most of their gear.

Legend has it the Chief Steward took the bond accounts with him to see everyone paid for their fags and beer.

Best Regards.
