A loaded Bank Line liberty ship in all her glory- the ERICBANK. She was one of 12 that the Bank Line owned and managed. They were suited to the contract from the British Phosphate Commission to carry Phosphate rock. Hundreds of voyages were made between Ocean Island/Nauru/(Makatea to a lesser extent) and either Australian or New Zealand discharge ports. (See a first hand account of an interesting sistership voyage – the Maplebank, by searching with the ‘Q’ symbol)
