Super picture Aldinga! She was my second ship. I joined her in Amsterdam where she was getting a new bottom after running aground on Fanning Island early '59. We had a great six weeks at Noord Amsterdam Drydock before a round world trip. We run her aground in the Pearl River and had an unexpected stay in Kowloon as a result!!! Another pleasant visit!!!
