Nice photo. Was she ready to discharge/load crago at 1,2,4 and 5 (and trunk hatch) as the derricks would suggest while at anchor?
Cheers John.

Hi Folks, I spent a year on the Malakand as 4th Eng and I remember her sister ship the Martand going down in the Hoogly. We were told that she had swung onto her own anchor and holed. It didn't take the loose wallers long to strip her ( the Martand )..... magic days
