As ALLGARD, she was owned by Husell, Bror. and operated under the Finnish flag in 1988-89. |
Believe she was Allgard late 80s, any idea of owners?
I was on the Meton Challenger in Contrecoeur in 1986. We had taken a consignment of amunition loaded in Hull UK for Nato exercises. She was a nice little ship. Regards Nick. |
If I remember correctly, she had come to deliver military cargo which included ammunition. Contrecoeur is far from urban areas and this dock was used extensively in those days to handle dangerous cargoes. In case an accidental explosion occured, the risk to the population was minimized.

great old one marc, though it is kind of odd that she was at the Contrecour dock for being so small. Almost all the ones I have seen there have been post-seaway size. Do you know what she was doing there, PM me if you know,thanks |
