I was on her next voyage to Calcutta in 65 . Her senior crew was pretty permanent for a few years . Old man was "Pem " Capt Pembridge ;Mate Taff Roberts Chief Eng Pat Morris ; Sparks Harry Jefferson ; quatermasters were Murdo McLeod ; Wiilie Mc Kenzie and a big Londener whose name escapes me ( He had huge hands which could hide a can of tennents when on gangway duty .)

Hello Dave. This image would be ideal for a book on Lt AJ Mann that I'm writing - he returned on Maipura in 1953 as passenger. Please pm me if that would be ok.
regards
Harry Nicholson, ex Brocks r/o.
