My name is J.C.Mammaux i had been engeener on Dolabella 4th in 1970 , second in 1975 , assistant chief in 1975 and 1976 .
Dolabella was built in France in Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard of St Nazaire . She effect her last trip in 1978 from Singapore to Kaho shiung ( Formasa ) to be scrap ... in january , it was aboard . It's a very sad thing , like that dead of personn .
