Joined her when layed up in Loch Striven as Canadian Bridge with Blair McIntyre as the Super along with 4 other 3rds.Had to stay ashore at night for the first week until we could get the ships services going; then took her around to drydock for survey, painting etc. The only bulker I sailed on; filthy when loading coal and terrible movement when loaded with Iron ore! - I think she was a sister ship to the Devonshire that went down in the Pacific.

I remember picking up a load of Vietnamese "Boat People" during one trip in the south China sea. We dropped them off in Singapore and got a commendation from the UNHCR High Commissioner.
