Sirsa to the breakers

Anyone sail on the Sirsa's final voyage for scrapping at Hong Kong from Shanghai in '71?

Just wondering. I was a very young R/O on her at the time and would be interested to share anyone's reminiscences of that voyage, including the discharge of scrap iron in Shanghai. If you were there, did you remain onboard as skeleton crew for a few days at anchor in Junk Bay, HK as I did? Did you manage to take any souvenirs home from her? I missed out on that particular opportunity for some reason. Like to have had the "Radio Room" sign. I seem to remember somebody took the ship's wheel home but it was a long time ago now.
