Great picture Petroc! one of the few of MARIANNA that I have seen. Was it taken in the Red Sea?

Yes, at anchor off Jeddah on 6 June 1961, presumably waiting her turn to pick up homeward passengers from the Hadj. I was on the Gunung Djati, also on the homeward run, in our case to Indonesia. I don't know where the Marianna ran to.

Thank you Petroc, I don't know where she run in 1961 (although I would presume from Libya) but during the pilgrim season of 1965 she run from Djakarta.
