What a fine ship - spent some time on her - with Capt Hankin, alias "Hurricane Hank", great character. Very hard graft for the engineers - real hot and no AC in our cabins when I was there.

I used to see her when living in Abu Dhabi during the late 1970's, heading up the Gulf on her way to Basra or in the other direction to Bombay, some time ago the BBC produced an excellant programme about the Dwada in the BBC 2 series "The World About us" with shots down in the engine room showing her Doxford main engine, oil fired scotch boiler and steam driven auxiliaries.
