Hi Paul,
What year was this photo taken?

Added by Marcel Gommers - editor on 23 January 2014.
In 1982, Elk was a STUFT (Ship Taken Up From Trade) for the Falklands conflict, and made three overnight runs into San Carlos water, to land essential stores and vehicles and re-supply rations and ammunition.

Not entirely sure though I believe circa 1978/82. I was at Pin Mill to get this shot.

Added by Paul Smith on 23 January 2014.
I joined M.V. Elk as Chief Engineer at the builders, Ulsan, Korea in October 1977. I was employed there in that position until I was employed in shore office in August 1992
