|In port for less than a day, the British tramp Warkworth is at Birkenhead "G" Berth, Port Adelaide on Monday 14 April 1969.She is probably cleaning out her holds and provisioning prior to loading barley at Ardrossan, across St. Vincent Gulf from Adelaide.The Wallaroo Mt. Lyell Coy's Fertiliser works in the background are long gone.
Built by Bartram's at South Dock, Middlesborough in 1962, her owners were the Watergate Steam Ship Company [R.S.Dalgliesh; managers - hence her funnel colours].
She was sold within the year and renamed Salamat, then subsequently Philippa in 1974 and Skymnos the same year. Sadly shelled at Fao on 9 January 1981 and left derelict.
See Paul Strathdee's pic of Skymnos at Glasgow in 1975.
