I sailed on the Cross in 1971 as 2nd refrig engineer on the Aussie
run and then cruising to the Pacific island's on 17 day cruises.
She was a fine ship with a good crew and as you would expect
great food. I left her in 72 to rejoin the cargo fleet to get more
time in port,then left Shaw Savill in 74 after 12 year's with the
company, the best I ever sailed with. If you want any information
on her please get in touch or if you want to sell your photo let
I have many photos of Southern Cross and always interested in others - please advise location where photo of ship was taken - its current location in your possession, and the asking price. If possible can you download photo so I may see the photo in question - as may already have it, in my collection.
Many thanks Jamie
