RFA EDDYBEACH 1951-1964

Based mainly at Gibraltar and acted as a water carrier during times of severe shortage there. Laid up 1962 at Devonport, and sold to Greeks in 1963. Converted to a fish factory vessel and renamed Mykinai. In 1974, the vessel sank alongside a quay after a bomb exploded in her engine room. Raised, laid up unrepaired, and sank again, at moorings, on 2 September 1979.
