Searched high and low for colour photo but either she was only photographed in black and white or she was painted black and white :-\

Use Google Images - enter "Atlantic Conveyor" and you will get links to LOTS of photos, B&W and colour. In the peacetime role and the wartime role.

Don't hold your breath for a reply, the place is virtualy dead now. Down to a hand full of staff - they have even sold off the cranes in the yard.

Another bit of British industry bites the dust.
