    Default Regent tankers

    I wonder if there is anyone around who sailed in any of the Regent tankers - Lion, Jaguar, Caribou, Tiger? Or even the old El Mirlo!

    Arrow Bowring's Tankers....

     An interesting group of old tankers there ,gents.. the kind that we would probably have seen many times during our time at sea and taken for granted,just going about their business,increasingly dwarfed by their ever larger tanker successors..yet a home over the years to thousands of seamen....(We do tend to get achingly nostalgic about ships sometimes....n'est-ce pas?)
