  1. Amonea

    Driven aground at Hongkong in Typhoon Ruby, September 1964. Refloated 11 October. Broken up at Hongkong in December. I sailed on her as third mate in 1960 when she was the Umaria of BISN Co. Built 1946 but seemed much older. Triple expansion steam and on a good day could make 9 knots.
  2. Mate and cadet.

    The mate giving a few jobs to a cadet. To the best of my memory this was the BI ship Umaria.
