CHRYSOVALANDOU, the former BIRCHBANK, built by Doxfords at Sunderland in 1958 and purchased by N.J.Pateras in 1970, was photographed approaching the locks at Brunsbüttel on 30 June 1971 bound from Hamburg for Poland to load her last cargo from Europe bound for East Pakistan where she sadly hit a mine and sank on 22 November that year. Her nominal owners were, ironically, the Holy Peacefulness Shipping Company.
