MV Chatham

Hi Meirion.
I sailed on the Chatam 1961/1962 as an AB.Signed on in Dublin. sailed to Philladelphia and then had 3 weeks in BA. Signed off in Victoria docks London. She had a name change then to the Mendoza Star. I believe she was sold to an Italian Subsidery company in 1967 and renamed the Calavittoria.

Regards

Tony

Chatham

I joined her in Aug 1960 working by in L/pool for one day! no sooner got my bags on board I was told to leave as there was a change of plan? I later that month joined her sister ship "Constable" in Preston for 5 happy trips before she was transferred to Blue Star as "Santos Star" They looked more like luxury yachts than reefers!(Thumb)
