David Elkington Year: 1958Norwegian Tanker 'Artemis'
I was interested in picture #345 which shows possibly HMS Apollo in which I served in 1957-8. The photograph was taken earlier, but I visited Invergordon in 1958 in Apollo. This is from the Illustrated London News and shows the tanker Artemis on fire in Holland. She had just sailed from Invergordon, where she had been moored close to Apollo. Apollo and Artemis were brother and sister in Greek mythology, and I was pleased to think that they met again before Artemis sailed to her destruction!
