Hi guys
I'm trying to hunt down pictures of a few of the boats that my late father John W. Hume was master on, namely:

MV EW Beattie
RA Emmerson
East Edmonton
GA Walker
Fort Coulonge
WA Mather
Fort Macleod (the last one he captained).

I've looked at ShipSpotting and nothing there, also have searched the internet but nothing flagged with those names.

Thanks in advance
Garry

These were followed by three more bulk carriers of 120,000dwt at a price of $13,150,000 each. The E.W.Beatty delivered September 1973, W.C.Van Horne and the W.M.Neal delivered in August 1974.
D.C.Coleman was delivered in January 1974, and the T.G.Shaughnessy delivered in January 1971 went on a ten-year charter to Gulf Oil.
Three 30,000dwt product carriers were built in Holland and delivered as the G.A.Walker in March 1973, to Exxon; W.A.Mather July 1973 and R.A.Emerson November 1973 to Shell. Two more of these ships from Holland came along right afterwards at a cost of $11.5 million each. The Fort Macleod delivered in March and Fort Steele in November 1974.

The Andover Hill picture is the wrong Fort Coulonge. It was a products tanker and one of the last few built for CP Ships in the 1980s.
