******** said:Hi David
I sailed on the "Ingleby" in 1955/56. Was senior apprentice.
She was the ex Ocean vengence.
Built in Richmond California May 1942
Scrapped in Taiwan 1969.
If you go to this website you can find out more info.
I was researching Ropnershipping and this website came up.
There was a section about the"Ocean"ships built during the war.
The covber ship "Heronspool" is as good as it gets as they were all the same.
Hope this helps
