I always liked this series of OCL ships-for container ships I thought they were quite good looking.I have a shot of JERVIS BAY which I took at her launch which I will show.

Jervis Bay

Jervis Bay built in Glasgow. Greatly delayed in completion but managed to open the container berth at Tilbury as the berth had been blocked due to stevedore strikes against containers.
