I wasn't on the ship at that time but was on her the trip after when she came back into service. I was 4th RO.

Welcome aboard, Fred.
I'm sure someone will have been around at that time from our crew.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the trip.

Fred,
I don't know about the explosion, but I wa son her when they found the gold after the robbery. In a sand box as I recall.

And I was on her when she ran aground in Flushing.
We should start a Capetown Castle Disaster Group.
I wonder what would have happened if we had ever all been aboard at the same time?

Hello Ted,
Capetown Castle was possibly diverted to Antwerp due to labour problems at Southampton as was Edinburgh Castle in 1975.
