Hello Mates,
This is Ram, an old salt who quit sea for a more challenging shore job during Christmas of 1971 when the ship MV Shunwah my maiden command originally Bradford City 4 was arrested in Singapore after the owners went into voluntary liquidation.I learnt from SN that this ship was later taken to Japan where she was presumably scrapped.
Would appreciate if any one has photograph of this vessel

I often wondered what happened to Jebshun as they seemed to fade from view about 1970, didn't realise they had gone into voluntary liquidation. They had a couple of unfortunate losses in 1969 with the Shun Tai sinking off Singapore after a collision and the Precious Diamond, ex Eastern Star, being burnt out at Hong Kong while refitting for Jebshun. Perhaps the wrecking of the Precious Ruby in 1971 was the straw that broke Jebshun's back.
Shun Wah was broken up at Tadotsu in May 1972.

Thanks Mate. I believe in the adage-haste makes waste. And hence a delayed response, albeit unintentional.

Say Ian- If my memory serves me right after four and forty years, were you not the Master aboard the M.V. Shun Hing which was also arrested along with the Shun Wah following Jebshun Shipping going into voluntary liquidation in Singapore around Christmas of 1971

Say Dave
I sure would give a right arm to know the whereabouts of the Lam brothers the owners of Jebshun Shipping Company. Did you also serve in this company?
