Lying in Peterhead.

    Hi Ally

    Interesting shot - would it have been taken before 1966?

    Reason I ask is that there was a Celebrity - General Cargo Ship around at that time but she changed name to Aegeon in 1966.

    That is one of Fred Everards - they still had a Celebrity when I was with Crescent Shipping from 72-77,though it may not have been that one. We heard them on the VHF more often than we saw them.

    Did hughie morton and co have this one for a while ? They had the Commodity too
    She was owned by hugie morton when he ran the company called Nordry Shipping up in Orkeny.

    She is still going working up near the manchester canals i believe could be wrong

    Hugie Morton also owned the celebrity.
    am sure she passed me in the minch is she a coal boat that was a couple o weeks ago
    She was owned by Big Ditch Shipping Co Ltd who operate Manchester Dry Dock - but was sold to an 'unknown buyer' in March 2009. Checked AIS and no sign of her!
