World Centurion / Texaco Texas

Clive ,
I have checked "Marine News" ( normally a sound journal for listing collisions & etc.) for 1962 & 1963 and can find no trace of this collision.
Can but assume it was a minor incident.

Regards,
Rick

Australia Calling Re:Texaco Texas.

Sorry I had almost forgotten this thread. I was waiting to get some information from the American authorities which I don't think is going to be forthcoming but I have been able to resolve this question via other channels within this site.

Thanks everyone for your help. Regards Clive
