1 thought on “35 years at sea – M.V. Carronbank, built 1957 at Harland’s, and in the company until 1974. One of a massive 17 ship order fulfilled between 1957 and 1964.

  1. The colour photo above is the Carronbank outward bound on the Thames on 13th June 1972. She is passing a power Station, Tilbury I think. This was my first trip to sea. She is heading to Europort for topping off. Then off to the Pacific via the Panama Canal and Tahiti (Pape’ete) to be precise. I was 21 years old and this was probably the best trip of my life.
