Sailed on the SS Nevasa around the Mediterranean in the late 1972 when she was being used for school cruises
Beautiful vessel , fantastic picture
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 troop ship I sailed to Singapore in August 1959 for a posting in Malaya and returned on her in March 1961 Great ship and good memories
researching my fathers time at sea ,AQUITANIA,QUEEN ELIZABETH,AND FINALLY TULIPFIELD on the costal runs around uk ,seeing it alongside the NEVASA ,makes you realise just how small it was . Great photo.
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.
