HiJames_C said:I'm looking for a photo of J T Salvesen of Grangemouths (no relation to the Leith firm) 'Vestra'.
Vestra, General Cargo
1921,1121grt by John Cran & Somerville, Leith (125) as GRANE for Norwegian owners
1928 GOOTE, Dutch
1936 LODEWYK, Dutch
1936 WARMOND, Dutch
1939 VESTRA, J.T.Salvesen of Grangemouth (not the better known Salvesens of Leith)
Arrived at Rosyth for breaking on 29/8/1957.
Can anyone help?
If you are still looking for a photo of the Vestra, I have one. My father was an engineer on that vessel in the 1950's in her days carrying paper pulp from Sewden to Aberdeen and coal from Methel to Sweden.
I will send you a copy if you give me your address.
Once again, I have edited out an email address posted on an Open Forum. This is not a good idea as, although with the best of intentions, it may result in some unwelcome mail arriving in your Inbox, and that's what you're not waiting for, isn't it?
