G'Day Malcolm, nice to hear from you - yes she loaded bulk wheat, I thought for China but the date in Manila would appear to contradict that. In the late 1960s South Australian grain ports were getting a stream of really decrepit tramps, many of them Greek; there were many desertions at the ports chiefly because the young crewmen did not wish to do compulsory military training under, I think, the right-wing regime at the time. I know some of them successfully evaded our Federal Police and subsequently became good Aussie citizens!

Hi Chris, many thanks for posting your super photograph of SULA. According to my 29th December 1967 Lloyd's Shipping Index she was sailing (having loaded a cargo of grain?) on 15th October 1967 bound for Manila where she arrived on 2nd November, and was still in port. Best regards. Malcolm Cranfield

The front and sides of the bridge had concrete panels to protect the crew in case the ship was hit by bombs or machine gun fire. Some operators after the war added more windows for better visibility.

Nothing surprising for Canadian wartime built standard ships of 'Park' and 'Fort' type.

The bridge has only 3 little windows!?!?
