    Sailed on the SS Nevasa around the Mediterranean in the late 1972 when she was being used for school cruises

    Nice photo lovely ship. We towed her in & out southampton a few times. There was another ship with her doing the school cruises SS UGANDA. She was used as a hospital ship in the Falklands war. Yes working on the tugs was great in those days.

    As a child we sailed down to Singapore. I remember seeing huge water spouts (two of them). I remember the life boats being made ready. Does anyone else remember this? It must have been late 50's or early 60's.
