I was an SOS on this vessel from Feb 56- Jan 57. She was almost new when I joined her, and I believe she was owned by Reynolds of Newcastle. I have searched the 'net high and low for some history on her but to no avail. Anyone know of her whereabouts. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Built for Stephens, Sutton of Newcastle in 1956 (6,072GT) by Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson at their Neptune Yard, Wallsend.
Became the 'Toula Xilas' in 1967, the 'Mary H' in 1973 and was damaged by grounding in November 1974 in the Balabac Strait. Refloated the next month and broken up at Kaohsiung the following year.

There is more than one way of using a search engine. It is not easy for me to visit the National Archives and other major museums so I have to do a lot of it online. The information is out there.

Glad to have helped

My friend, Alan Roberts, was a crew member on the MV Reaveley, Now living in the Philippines (under a Mango tree) Alan would be thrilled to make contact with any old Reaveley shipmates, or to be able to track a photograph of her.

Hi Parminter, I was on her for one trip Feb.1956-Jan.1957. I didn't have a picture of her,but I do now thanks to Scorcher. But I do have some old B/W crew pictures. I'm not sure how to post them but I could scan and e-mail them,if they are any good to your friend.
