And back in from Seaham to load rapeseed for Erith on 30th November
And 39 years ago I was doing the same cargo on Everard's STABILITY between Rotterdam and Erith. Basically any ship in the fleet heading for the Thames loaded a cargo of rape seed, or beans, for Erith. We did one trip a week to Erith and spent most of the week swinging at the buoys of Greenhithe. Apart from one weekend we were there so as cadet I was sent ashore for the Sunday papers, no internet or SKY then.
