I have a friend whose father served with Eagle Oil pre WW2 on the following vessels: San Roberto, San Silvestre, San Macedonio, San Pacheco, San Quirino, San Gerardo and San Salvador. He would dearly like to obtain any photographs of the above vessels. Can anyone help? Regards Colin

Hi:
If you email me at ******** I can send you:

San Silvestre (1913) - 210 Kb
San Macedonio (1922) - 214 Kb
San Gerado (1922) - 213 Kb

Also other pre-WW11 Eagles. I found them all on the internet at various places.

Cheers, Geoff

Ahoy Geoff

John
Ahoy John,
I have the same book, and if they were present in that book I surely would post those piccies, but they are not present in this book.(MAD)
Isn't this forum not devoted to help each other?
Almost 1 year since the last reply on this thread, but still looking around to find whatever comes on my way.

Hi-- I had not seen this thread before. The attached is a poor pic of the San Gerardo, photographed with the American Planter.However, as you appear to be struggling to collect any images, this may help at least. Regards

Ahoy John,
Well done (Thumb) ,at least we help each other,with good or bad piccies/details, that's where it's all about.
Was this thread also forgotten, but suddenly I came across some "Eagle" tankers after reading the story of the San Demetrio 1940, and the link was there.
Thanks again, most appreciated!

I don't think this is the right San Gerardo. The one shown may well be San Gerardo, but she looks like the Shell 'H' class 18000 tonners built after the war. There was quite a few of that type in Eagle's fleet, which were eventually taken over by Shell. For a time they kept their old names but Shell colours, and the one in the photo is in Shell colours. Later on they were renamed by Shell with 'H' names. I was 2nd. Mate with Eagle at the time of the change-over, and we were given three choices. Leave the company, stay on until our contracts expired, or transfer to Shell with rank and seniority maintained.

Eagle Oil Fleet List

Colin - Here are pages from Eagle Tankers 1966
Stan,
Is there any possibility of you posting the later pages of this booklet and so completing the fleet list? I was on the 1953 "San Florentino" when she was under the Shell flag in 1963/64. Lovely ship, happy crowd and with accommodation well above the Shell "H" class of ships.
