Downriver off Tilbury 30/8/81, in the days when Carisbrooke Shipping was a fledgling UK shipowner with half-a-dozen or so second-hand coasters of 1950s and 60s vintage. Although they have strong Dutch connections, Carisbrooke are one of the UKs premier shipowners with a large fleet of dry cargo ships between 3,000 and 19,500 dwt and an average age of less than 10 years.

The large ship being overtaken is either the Troll park or Artic Troll outbound from Tilbury

If the photo was taken in 1981, the Troll Line vessel wouldn't have come from Samuel Williams -- Dagenham Dock closed in 1980. When the Williams facilities shut down, the PLA made a swoop and pulled most of the traffic into Tilbury, including the two big forest product customers of Dagenham Dock, Troll Line and Sylvan Shipping. So if this is a 1981 photo, the Troll vessel would have discharged at 42 berth Tilbury.
