Everard Tanker

I photographed this Everard tanker in the Tyne during May 1966, but have mislaid my record of the name and the slide is not sharp enough to read it. Can anyone identify it please?

Looks to be GRIT of 1958-1968.

Hi George. A later and slightly sharper scan suggests an eight-letter name, and a trawl through the local library's microfilms of the Shields Gazette shows the only Everard vessel to have been in a South Shields or North Shields yard in May 1966 to be the Assurity (Goole 1956). Looks like a close match with the exception of the goal-post mast in way of the funnel. Any thoughts?

Is the goal post not on the vessel hidden beyond her?

Ye Gods - of course it is!! I must be losing my grip - or perhaps time for a trip to Specsavers.
Thanks Patrick.
