I joined this ship in Dublin as EDH on 28/12/73 and paid off a month later in Swansea. I thought she was a great ship and re-joined her in Amsterdam a week later!!
We signed on on 29/1/74 and went out East returning on 12/6/74 I had a great time with a great crowd. I then joned Antilochus as AB for a round the land job and paid off her on 15/7/74in Glasgow. I went home, or should I say, to the Mona, and the lads in there told me Elpenor was due to sail that day for the East so I went down to Gladstone Dock and there she was with Blue Peter flying. I went aboard and she was 1 AB short, someone hadn't turned up, so I signed on againreturning to Liverpool on18/11/74. What a great trip.
It was when we got home that I learned that most of Blueys British Fleet had been sold, we were all devastated to say the least.
1978 sold to Liberian owners,
renamed United Concord.
Here her younger sister:
1935 transferred to Glen Line
