NALDERA was built in 1918. She was under construction during the first world war but was not completed until 1918. She was 15,996 tons, the first three-funnelled steamship in the Company. She did not enter service until 1920 when she was joined by a new sister ship the NARKUNDA which was 16,227 tons. Also a three-funnelled ship, both NARKUNDA and NALDERA had very attractive lines, and their twin quadruple expansion engines were very reliable and quick acting that they could be manoeuvred more like tugs than ocean going liners. They served on the Australian line voyage. You will see these ships mentioned in my history of P&O. David
