I understand that they are both in Arabic service, which is somewhat ironic for a pair of Christian Saints. St Clair is now Barakat owned by Baaboud Trading & Shipping, who operate obscure services from Saudi to Sudan and other backwaters. St Sunivar is now Faye of Al Thuraya Marine operating from Iraq to UAE.

I remember going for a holiday with my father in 1948 (I was 13 yrs. old) on the Orkney/Shetland steamers. St. Ninian, Aberdeen to Kirkwall then Lerwick. Then St. Rognvald round the smaller islands, unforgettable watching the locals swim cattle out to the ship behind a launch, then hoisting them on board with a bellyband. Home again from Lerwick by St. Clair. A visit to the engine room on St.Clair confirmed my future choice of career!
