        Ribble and Forth (Sam Walters) with Towy and Kubina (Leslie Berridge) are rather overshadowed by seagoing  ships at the Stanley refinery on the  Manchester Ship Canal as they wait to take on fuel oil for delivery to the Midlands on 20th August 1953.  The barrel on Kubina’s deck was used to store equipment.
