Bank Line’s 1962 Doxford built INVERBANK is here seen as IRINI G.F. at anchor near Mersey Bar on 24th August 1980, the photographs taken from one of the pilot cutters. She had been purchased in 1978 by Loutra Shipping & General Enterprises Ltd (G.M. & M.G.Frangos) of Piraeus. 

IRINI G.F. had recently arrived at the anchorage from Churchill with a cargo of grain for discharge into one of Birkenhead’s silos, at the time occupied with another ship. 

IRINI G.F. finally arrived at Chittagong on 14.7.84 for breaking
