I sailed as 2nd Mate on her in 1967-68. One voyage to Far East and Japan, we just avoided the closure of the Suez Canal and went via the Cape, about 33 days non-stop. Next voyage also via the Cape to the Persian Gulf and India. Captain was Ian McBeath, a gentleman.

I was in India on City of Bristol but bound for home when canal closed and diverted around Africa via Mombasa for additional bunkers.
