Here I go again, wanting to see photographs of Brocklebank ships.
It seems that out of the later ships built for Brocklebank, ie from just pre-war until the mid 1960s there are very few that haven't been posted on the site at one time or another. One that springs to mind and which I don't recall seeing is SS MACHARDA. She was built in 1938 and served until she was scrapped at Hong Kong in 1962, one year after I joined the company. I never saw her and have no anecdotes what-so-ever about her. Can anyone help with a photograph and tales from the briney?

Sailed on Macharda as 2nd Eng 1960-61. Johnny Bain was Cheif, quite similar to Marwarri but unfortuneately don't have any photos. Good possibility that Jim Pottinger will have a photo.
Cheers.
Bob.
