Great photo. The ship is in such good condition that it looks like a builder's trials shot. When built she could achieve 14 knots.
This Pegu was the sixth to carry that name for British & Burmese and operated on their Rangoon service until it was closed in 1966. The Liner Holdings group and the subsequent parent, Ocean SS frequently moved ships between different subsidiaries whilst retaining the same ship's name. In the case of the Pegu she was transferred to Elder Dempster in 1964, to Guinea Gulf in 1966, to China Mutual for one voyage in 1972 and back to Elder Dempster on her return to the UK. Finally she was transferred to Guinea Gulf again in 1975, staying with them until 1980 when she was sold to Sidebank Investments of the Isle of Man and renamed Regu.
The following year she was sold to Akrata Shipping of Cyprus as the Joelle, who kept her for a year before selling her to another Cyprus shipowner, Salerno Marine, who renamed her Nicol Mylo. She was sold for scrap and broken up at Kaohsiung during November 1983.

A blast from the past! Just trawling through the site for the first time in many years.

I was 2nd Mate on Pegu for two trips Europe - West Africa in 1977. At that time she was on a time charter to Cameroon National Line; (Yellow funnel with dark green top band and a large red "Camerun" or prawn - which looked from a distance like a "C".

The charter ended summer '77 and I left her in Middlesbrough as she was returned to Guinea Gulf Line and loading steel for Lagos. My first (and only) trips on a true general cargo ship - quite an eye-opener, but much enjoyed.

I worked on the Pegu many times, loading her for Calcutta and Rangoon, at the Bibby Line berth in Birkenhead. This was in the late sixties, early seventies, and at that time she had a black funnel. I was under the impression that she was one of 'Paddy Henderson's' ships, which had a joint service with Bibby's.
