I'm open to correction on the date, I haven't dated the photo for some reason so just made an educated guess.

It was 1969 when the parent United Fruit, later United Brands colours were introduced - The houseflag changed to from the E&F in a white diamond on a blue background changed to a blue and yellow swallow tailed flag with "Fyffes" in a blue oval in the yellow section.

The Camito was a great ship,my favourite.I did nine trips on her 1958/59.She was a happy ship, with an interesting engine room ,on a good run to the West Indies. The trips lasted about three and a half weeks, what more could you want?!!!!
