    Background: At the Hellenic Shipyards of Scaramanga, near Athens, June 10, King Paul of Greece inaugurated two 25,000-ton floating docks.

    Greek Navy torpedo-boat "Keravnos" cut the ceremonial tape with here bows and carried the Royal family into one of the docks. After a blessing ceremony, also attended by shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, the Greek Royal couple unveiled the name-plates of the new docks - "King Paul' and "Queen Frederika".

    According to reports from Athens, the Scaramanga shipyards - where a 25,000-ton tanker is at present under construction - will soon become a repair and drydocking centre for the greater part of Greek-owned shipping.
