Expo 58/1 an ex L.C.T. ship

Bericht door sidnik77 » 28 feb 2019 19:41

Hi,
i am looking information about the Expo 58/1,
built as a Landing Craft Tank during WWII.
I'ts IMO during it's civilian life was 6520387,
and and was built in 1942.
The ship was sold in Antwerp the December of 1959 to the next Greek ship owner.
Do you have any information or photographs?

Hi Sidnik77,

This is the site where I found the photo of the PAPAGEORGIOU II: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File ... #filelinks
The only additional information I could find about the ship is that it was foundered on 6th December 1980 near the greek island of Thasos: https://www.wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?271981
As far as I can see there is no information available about any earlier or military history of the vessel: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/de ... EORGIOU_II
Groet,
Hans
