Bolton Abbey, Melrose Abbey

Post by SpenceB » Tue Dec 04, 2012 8:24 pm

Looking for a picture of either of these ships built in 1958/59 during my time with Brooke Marine Ltd.
Could this be one for Yorkieman ????
Cheers, Iain

To be honest, I never knew this Jim Edwards, they came to me via someone else! Quite a nice set of Hull docks around 1970's, will dig out some more.
Hope all is well on Viccy Dock.

Many Thanks, All, for the rapid response to my request on these ships.
The first three pictures of the Melrose Abbey are of the previous vessel replaced in 1959 by the sistership to the Bolton Abbey shown,but are also of interest. Thanks again,
Iain
