We visited my parents yesterday, and I took a few boxes of slides i\’d found recently as my mother has a new super dooper scanner that can make short work of scanning 4 slides at a time.
However a quick Wikipedia lookup checked the facts. The ship that sunk killing 193 was a new ship commissioned in the late 70\’s, so this was not it Wikipedia entry on the disaster
I then found a Ferry Site that shows all sorts of details of the various (8!) vessels of the same name. The link takes you to the 7th of the name, which would appear to be this one. It survived under various names until 2000. It\’s proof positive that there\’s all sorts out there on the net!
The photo was actually taken from Calais harbour on a trip across the Channel in a small yacht with my Dad, sister and some friends of dad (to provide the sailing expertise!).
Still, seeing the name still gave me a momentary shock before I did the research.
