Although I spent most of my time on tankers, quite a bit of that time was spent carrying bulk cargoes of grain. I do like this picture of the 'Trad' though, I doubt she ever looked finer. Makes me want to give her a hug.

Love your old pics David, bring back lots of fond memories, I was on only two tankers, BP birdy boat the "British Cygnet" (BP Endeavour) and Shell's H class the "Hemiplecta"

She was a nice ship. Although externally she appeared pretty much identical to the London Valour, her older sister, they'd altered her internal layout slightly but more significantly put far more effort and expense into the accommodation. As ever she looked best when fully laden. My only complaint about her was that unlike most British ships she didn't have a G call sign but MXYC. That sometimes meant extended watches because we'd often be at the end of a long queue behind all the G call signs. The Valour's call sign was MXGC and just as irritating.
