m.s Patella
Alex Duncan
The m.s Patella was built at the famous Harland & Wolff shipyard, Belfast for the Anglo-Saxon Oil Company. She was a bitumen carrier, with wider centre tanks.These tanks were also heated so as the bitumen would stay liquid. Her basic dimensions were 8277 grt, 465` x 59`. She was completed in 1946 and served her masters well until 1967 when she was sold to a scrapyard in Bruges for £57,000.

Dad spent six months onboard onboard between 17th June 1958 and 23rd December 1958.
