Anyone recognise this funnel mark? Taken on the Tyne around 40 years ago.

Tis the Ocean-Wide Shipping Co Ltd. c/o Compass Agencies, Inc., 327 South La Salle Street, Chicargo, Ill., 60604. USA.
At the time they owned a single ship called the COMPASS SPIRIT Built 1953/5789 Gross.

Well found, Paul!
A product of the Bartram yard in 1953 as BOHEME, she was COMPASS SPIRIT 1966-1970. As her funnel suggests, she was a steamer, triple expansion.

Thanks Paul, George,
Yes, it's from last nights Gazette. The funnel marking caught my eye as i'm certain a recent photo i got hold of has the same marking but not sure if it's the same ship as i cannot find photo (filing system none existant).
