Bulk carrier AURORA

Large 150000dwt P&O bulk carrier fitting out at Sunderland in 1975. She was built at the North Sands yard of Sunderland Shipbuilders.
Sold in 1990 she became BERLISA and is still trading as URGUP.
Her name was revived on a much different ship, the present cruise liner shown to great effect in picture #14805.

This ship was known as the black pig when she traded her way around the Asia Pacific ports. I remember as a young lad looking down on her from Wearmouth bridge. As an Adult I worked on her whilst she was in Antwerp in 1993.
