I sailed on this cargo vessel in 1963/4 as Junior Engineer. Would be interested to hear from anyone who sailed on her.

Hi Iain,

I was on the Saldura from April 63 thru November 63. I was Cabin Boy upstairs so I guess I must have looked after you, your cabin and your meals. It was my first trip to sea after leaving TS Dolphin. Joined in Amsterdam. My mate was wee Wullie Sharp who was Galley Boy on that trip. Great times. Salvesens was a good line.
