I am looking for information on the final fate of the following 1948-build ships:
Clan Macleod, sold 1976 and renamed Papaji.
Clan Maclay, sold 1976 as Climax Amethyst.
Clan Maclean, sold 1976 as Sentosa Island.

Any clues?

Clan Mactavish

I made an error in name of my photo of Clan Mactavish - it is probably Clan Malcolm.

Moyana

Norman
The 'Moyana' did belong to the Warsash School of Navigation.
As I recall she had just completed the Torbay/Lisbon sailing race (may even have won it) manned by cadets from the school and foundered on the return voyage.
There was an oil painting depicting the rescue displayed at the school when I was there.
She was replaced by 'Halcyon'
