Sailed on her as a Red Funnel ferry. When Canberra made her maiden voyage on 2nd June 1961 I was on board Balmoral with my father following her down Southampton Water on our way to Cowes after failing to join the merchant navy. Hopefully, she will be sailing again soon on the UK coasts having not sailed at all in 2018. I have moved this to Preserved Vessels.

Funnel cowl yet to be fitted. Her first season on the Bristol Channel. Let's hope she will soon return to operation! One of 'the peoples' liners'
