MV Ruthenic

 

Just a run job on this one from Royal Docks to Avonmouth. Engines had problems and it took us three days to actually get out of the docks and into the Thames. Originally built in Belfast as the mv Durango during the Second World War. After leaving the ship it was back to London by train to join the mv Romanic.
