Anyone got any imformation on this ship HELKA.
I joined her in Janury 1957 in HULL.I think the company
was EUXINE SHIPPING CO.(Not certain).I think she had
a sister ship (HENDI).There was painted white overside.
Anyone been on the ships or any imformation would be
pleased to hear from you.

i joined the helka in aberdeen on 25 mar 1954,as you say she was all white and owned by the euxine shipping co.
captain was a capt. ross, i did two trips down the meddy on her,i think we took military stores to the gulf of aquaba and jute back to dundee,
first trip paid of in grangemouth 23 may 54. next trip paid off in dundee,15 july. 54. can't make out the old mans name on the second trip.
