Trochurus was one of quite a few T2 tankers lying of Queensferry Scotland waiting on crews.I and quite a few others from Grangemouth pool signed on in the town of Linlithgow on the 24 July 1958. I was SoS at the time.

I was a pupil at Crantock Street Primary School in Newuay, Cornwall, and asa part of a Geography project, we "adopted" the TES Trochurus, and wrote to it's Captain and crew. Captain Ham from Maesteg, in South Wales, came to visit us, with his sons, (one called Cedric) It was very interesting at that time to learn about places that oil tankers visited in those days, long before the internet and other communication methods available today.
Captain Ham must now have passed on as this was over 60 years ago - but I have often wondered what happened to the ship, and wonder if Cedric Ham is still alive ?
