It looks as though the ship is registered in France - Fecamp.

iambeavis, looks promising, all we have to do now is narrow down the area.

I'm turning in now folks, G'Night All.

In 1970 we were alongside in Le Havre, in July, and I took a trip to Fecamp. As I remember it there were white cliffs there, of the type that can be seen in the background of the photo.

I'm off to my bunk now. Goodnight.

You were the true star last night. This, with sidecar sid's help was a very good find - the whiting was so dim I did not see it and still would not have known of that place.

Good grief, a half-remembered memory from my days under the "Red Duster" seems to have come good.

iambeavis, Well Done from one ex-merch to another ;o}}

Ex-merch indeed. Even after all these years shoreside, I still miss the lullaby of the diesels (or the hum of the "gennies", in port). No insomnia back then. :)
