I sailed on Maloja (9/74-1/75) as a first trip Junior Engineer after completing a 4 year cadetship at South Shields Marine College. She was still under charter to Shell and I always remember flying out to join her in Curacao 1st Class (the first and only time in all my days at sea) due to missing the flight in London because of fog. Spent the next few months sailing between Punta Cardon and Curacao before heading back to Northern Europe for the Winter.
She was a great little ship in which to start ones career and helped me decide that steam was the way to go. Chief Engineer was a Pete Simpson to start followed by Alex Young.
