Description:

Two old British tankers await demolition by Shipbreaking Industries Ltd at their Faslane scrap yard in Gare Loch, Scotland in August, 1976.
On the outside is the 12,174 grt/18,877 dwt CERINTHUS (IMO 5067493), of Hadley Shipping Co, London. Built 1954 by Harland & Wolff Ltd, Belfast, she was powered by two Harland & Wolff steam turbines.
The other one is 12,078 grt/16,600 dwt EL LOBO (IMO 510008), built 1959 by Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson, Wallsend for Burmah Oil Trading Co Ltd, and managed by Bowring SS Co Ltd. She was powered by a six-cylinder Doxford 67LBD6 of 6,250bhp at 115rpm.
Behind the tankers is the now-much-extended Royal Navy base, with one of the ‘ROVER’ class RFA’s visible behind CERINTHUS.

Cerinthus was the first vessel that I served on when I entered the MN & The Naval Base at Faslane was where I ended my seagoing career in the RFA thirteen years later.

Perhaps there should be a possibiloity to enter both scrap yard name and the ships identified in the searchable register.

Fantastic shot, a real document !, it may be an idea to just put it under the CERINTHUS name and entry !, otherwise many will never know that there is picture of her at the scrapyard.
