On the 28 of August 1977, when sailing from Singapore to Pulsan in South Korea, I was Deck Officer and you met a vietnamian fishing boat with 71 refugees. I stopped the Miralda and after an evaluation. of their status, we took them on board. When arriving in Pulsan, since our refugees didn\'t have all compulsory documents (passport, vaccinations booklet, etc), we were put in quarantine. It was a strong human adventure. I made pictures and we sold them to newspaper in order to provide money to the vietnamian people. An Engineer Officer got married on board with one of the young vietnamian lady. I do remember the bosco: FranA?ois Mingant who was a great seaman. If you have any possibility to know the crew list of the Miralda when it happened, it\'ll be great to know. Please mail me!

In 1978, our fishing boat captained by my father was rescued in the South China Sea by Le Miralda. I was 6 yrs old at the time, fleeing from the fall of Saigon. I have a picture of the crew of the tanker and would like assistance in identifying these generous men who rescued us.
