Any one out there remember sailing on her back in 1964. Arrived in Melbourne two days before the Beatles. Captain North was a mad cine camera man and got footage of the Beatles as they travelled from the airport to the city.

Not I but I went around the land in her July 1965, Avonmouth to Liverpool. Her gennies burnt more lub oil than diesel.
