BEAVERBANK

The 1974 BEAVERBANK, launched 21 years after her 1953 namesake… Sold out of the fleet after 7 years service, her later names were: SANJOHN BAY – SOTIRAS – APOCALYPSIS – SEA GLISTER – VIGOROUS SWAN, and LUCKY 25. Scrapped in 1998.

My first ship as apprentice 1977. Joined Middlesbrough. Loading around Europe for the Persian Gulf, then Australia & New Zealand for East Coast United States Flew home from New York after 6 months. Great start to my seagoing career.

My first trip as Engine Cadet, joined East London, South Africa and did South Africa – Far East for 6 months great times and memories for a Liverpool lad who’d never been out of the UK
