I am looking for any photographs at all on the Manoora. She was I believe
owned by Adelaide Steamship Co. She travelled around the east coast of
Australia during the 60's. I know she was sold and called Ambulombo and foundered
somewhere near the Phillipines. I was fortunate enough to travel on her
to Cairns from Melbourne and return in 1957. I have very fond memories
of her and the Kanimbla. Any photos of either of these two wonderful vessels
would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Many thanks Ruud. She had a great history and came really unscathed throughout WW 2, not without a few close shaves. I am trying to obtain a really good photograph
for framing purposes, so if someone has a good photo I would be more than happy
to purchase it.
Cheers,

Peter:
I noticed that there is a print available online showing her sinking an Italian freighter.
It's a reasonable price, but it may be too small for your purpose.
