St Clements leaving Stromness. Date estimated.
Large Version View Large Version
Picture added on 11 February 2008
"St.Clement" built 1946 Halls in Aberdeen 840hp British Polar engine. Looks like John Kirkness the Bosun from Burray back on near the stern and possibly Leslie Campbell AB from Fife son of Attie Campbell of Stromness coiling a mooring rope down the hatch after letting go from the pier. Leslie was regularly relieving there when home from deepsea till 1974 but I think John retired in the early 70s.
