I think she's the 'Grit' of 1958, a tanker of 2,739GT, 310' x 45', diesel, single screw, 10 1/2 knots.
She may have been built by the Goole Shipbuilding & Reparing Co., but I'm not certain.

"Grit" is a traditional Everard name and there have probably been half a dozen in their fleet.

Hi Billmaca
Looks very much like the AQUEITY in her early days with the Co. Later the Jolly Boat stowed amidships in the photo was carried on the foredeck.

this photo was taken from the Esso Lambeth "Fawly to Tilbury" but there was a custums launch following us up river as he had hailed us downriver as to where we had come from, he made the mistake of taking the answer from aft . and some nut shouted Dunkirk, he was not very happy when the bridge gave him the truth

Or the "Integrity" ? I.m new at this and grabbin' straws ! But I started out back in 1944 on the "Annuity" Not having any sea exp. caused me great discomfort and much hilarity for those sailing on that little thing ! No ! washing ones testicles and private parts with Lifebuoy soap in a bucket of sea water, on deck, did not alleviate the suffering. I also sailed on the "Aqueity" ( A Chant),( Mined,sank off the Scheldt ) the "Superiority" the "Aridity " The "Frank.M." and a couple of other coasters before I discovered the tropics and realised that the north sea was really for the birds. As you all know there's nothing nicer than sailing on the Indian Ocean coasts of the middle east in January, Oops this was to be a kwik reply ! Sorry guys.

Which Everard.

Hi, I have a photos of the Acuity (ex Empire Tedship 1946), Amity (ex Empire Tendassa 1945) Antonality, Austility, Arduity, Atonality, all black overside, The photo I have of the Alignity has grey overside seems identical build to the one in your photo. But of course there could have been others. Ken.

Thats definitely not the same craft ,she seems a bit modern for the time of the one on the photo , 1960/61 I've been told by some of the ex coast lads that there were a few ships named "Crit" in the Everard fleet,
