Just noticed that Miramar, in following the entry in Lloyds' Register, appears to be in error in showing A&P as her builders.
John Lingwood in his SD14 book lists her as completed by Bartrams, so she is included in the right section of NEM!

The records used for the Sunderland-built site show that the Bartram name was used only to yard number 426, ERAWAN in 1971.
The next, MOLDOVA y.n.427 was under the A&P name, South Dock yard.
Ron, look again at Lingwood ... open at p.p.116-117.
So this vessel is correctly built by A&P at their South Dock yard.

Ah, fooled by the continuous run of yard numbers and didn't spot that! My apologies.

So are we in the right section with Bartram/South Dock? Or should there be another sub-section for A&P, South Dock?

The section was intended to cover any ships built at South Dock so OK as it stands, hence the / in the title.
