Assisted by London Tugs AVENGER (62/130), MAWANA (58/8744) is seen passing Tilbury (UK) on the 20th September 1969.
AVENGER was renamed AVENGER IV in 1985 by Purvis Marine Limited and was working somewhere in the US/Canada area I believe. Is she still working?

Nice photo Bob S, where did you take it from. I am casting my mind back and I think I might actually have joined her in Tilbury for her next voyage.

G'dye Bob,
Thanks for that, I have just set the photo as my desk top item. My memory dims but I was certainly on the Mawana for her next outward voyage, I might even have been onboard when you took that photo. Anyway, it is all history now, including Brocks, whom many of us would have said was floating history in 1969. Oh well, it is a great desk top and my pc now looks like a tribute to the Raj!
Best regards,
Cboots

Hi Cboots,

When I get the time, I'll send you the original image which is of better quality via the forum email facility.

Glad you like the photo

Regards

Bob

Great pic and one to jog some memories. I was onboard her at the time for my second trip as junior R/O (CR/O was Phil Marriott). I recall we loaded assorted munitions and ordnance for Red Sea ports.

Best regards to all
