You didn't search everywhere very well. One has been on shipsnostalgia for months.

Go into Gallery and enter the name of the ship you want in the box after the new entries and press go. If there are numerous entries then they will all be displayed.

Found another BRIMSDOWN 1951,piccie by courtesy/© A.Duncan.
One of four vessels. Can anyone say why these 4 steamers were built shortly AFTER 4 diesel colliers with the same basic hull?

Cheers, Geoff

Ruud,
Many thanks again for coming up with the Goods, I really appreciate the new photograph of ''Brimsdown'' as I am building up a very nice history of the ships that I sailed on. I Am looking out at the Med just now from Cyprus and I think of all the many times I sailed by, ''enroute to new adventures past Suez,'' Hi Hi, ''All the Best for now.''

Hello. I’m a little late to the discussion on the Brimsdown but I’m hoping someone will still see this message! She was sailing either into or out of the Thames between 24-26 May 1951 and the steering gear broke. She crashed into one of the bridges on the Thames .... I don’t suppose anyone knows which bridge it was?
Thank you!
