Hello all,
I sailed on the Vaal from dec 70 till nov 73, I am in the process of scanning old slides and photos of my time at sea so no doubt I will come across some shots.

Hello Malaika,
Hope all is well with you.I sailed on the SA Vaal for 20 trips ( according to my discharge book, did not realise I was on there for so many trips) from December 1970 till october 1973 my last 4 trips were as the chief purser and chief engineers steward. I then did 8 trips on the Orange before leaving the merchant navy in march 1975.
Sorry to say that I have no photos of any of the activities that went on but have managed to collect some photos of the vaal along the way. Mostly from pictures posted and some of my own, have attached a couple. I have good memories of my time on the vaal and the places we stopped at.
take care and best wishes
tony
