Pleased to be able to show some new photographs of the unfortunate Ro-Ro Vessel HERO Ship No 511 built at the Leith Shipyards of Robb Caledon (Henry Robb)

The photographs are shown by permission of Rudi van der Sluis

Who runs an excellent website about the great shipyards of Amsterdam and can be found at

A very interesting site for any one with an interest in shipbuilding and the people who built the ships in Amsterdam, shipyards with a great history and unfortunately they also found the yards in the same position as the great shipyards of the British Isles.

The MV HERO just prior to her "Jumbosizing" in 1976 at the Amsterdam DryDock Company
