Antrim was a typical cargo ship of its time, with hatches and derricks much like Benkitlan.

Callsign GHXT

12th August 1972 – Join Antrim in Newcastle.

Antrim was the only ship I sailed on that had an all white UK crew.

I was only on Antrim for one month so have few memories. We only doddled around the North Sea area, ports included Newcastle, Rotterdam, Hamburg and Immingham. I cannot remember what cargoes we carried. Some of the radio room kit was a bit antiquated!

11th September 1972 – Leave Antrim in Immingham, so only a month!
