Malakand Turtle

Malakand Turtle

One of two turtles presented to Brocklebank's SS Malakand during stop in the Maldives, 1964. They were kept in the swimming pool for a couple of days and released soon after we sailed.

Well done for releasing them. Sadly I was presented with one at Middleton Reef as a kind present to the crew for helping fix the freezer plant on a fishing boat. The (Tongan) crew took the turtle and did what Tongans do when they are hungry; I got the case of Black Label. To have intervened on the fate of their present would have been unwise......
