Passat and Pamir in a mirror flat Penarth Dock

'Pamir' and 'Passat' (nearest) moored up at the northern quay of Penarth Dock in late 1949 or early 1950 on a mirror flat dock! The photograph was taken from the lockside at a point between the basin and main dock. I wonder how many rats are aboard each of the vessels? The hull shows signs of heavy seas and the need for some tender loving care which was shortly to come from a complete refurbishment in Hamburg in readiness for conversion to their merchant training ship role.
