In July 1966 at the height of the Vietnam War the Ulster Star left the UK and sailed light ship to Greece where it picked up a cargo of frozen pork (road freighted down from Bulgaria) and spent 6 weeks unloading it in Saigon. It then returned all the way to the UK ... light ship. Wonder how much per tonne that pork cost to ship?
