AEGIS SAGA seen here arriving in 1972. Within just eight hours she had loaded stores, bunkered and departed, resuming her voyage to Rotterdam. Launched in 1949 as SILVERHOLLY, she was purchased by Alfred Holt when almost completed and became Blue Funnel Line's ULYSSES. Sold to Aegis Shipping in 1971 to be renamed AEGIS SAGA, she was scrapped in 1974.
