An extract from Steve Pulfrey and Paul Kings “The Final Years of the Side Trawlers”

“The Northern Eagle is one of the six oil burners built by Rickmers Werft. The outline of the vessel can only be described as Majestic with the triple deck accommadation and high flared bow. Although somewhat smaller than the Arsenal, Everton and Ross Renown its presence seemed to dominate the surroundings.”
