I used to discharge this vessel at the old East Yelland Powerstation in North Devon. Quite a few of Crescent Shipping vessels used our quay. By the way Captain Whiteman and Captain Marshall were ex. Masters.

My father - Peter Whiting would have been the skipper of the Crescence around this time in the 70s. The photo shows her moored at Lynch's wharf off Canal Road strood. Lynch's I believe was a scrap metal wharf.
