British Gunner
British Gunner
She would have been shiny and new when this was taken as she was only completed in May of that year. One of 3 rather odd sized ships, 14,500 DWT, ordered for delivery in 1954 and all built by Harland and Wolff. The British Gunner and her sister British Sergeant were built in their Glasgow yard while the third of the trio British Corporal was built in Belfast. As an aside, I think the Clyde Yard finished the Sergeant on a Friday afternoon as she only came out at 13,712 DWT while her sisters came out at 14,571 & 14.577 DWT respectively. Powered by a 6-cyl. 2 S.C.S.A. B&W type oil engine manufactured by the shipbuilder developing 4,950bhp and geared to a single shaft which gave her a service speed of 12 knots. All 3 of the sisters were transferred to the the Clyde Tanker Company, the Gunner in 1961 and the other two in 1960. All changed the first word of their names from "British" to "Clyde". By 1964 they had all reverted to the BP Tanker Co. Ltd. and changed their names back to "British". British Gunner was sold to Desguaces Maritimos S. A. and arrived at Vinaroz on the 17th of May 1972 for demolition, almost 18 years to the day since her delivery from the yard.
