I did two voyages on her in 1961 , visiting Pitcairn Island on our way to New Zealand. Captain Heywood was a stern Master but a legendary seaman. Souveniers are very rare as she carried so few passengers but I do have a tankard.
Minimal facilities included a temporary swimming pool made of wood and canvas on the foredeck. John

Thanks Chris for posting this photo and thanks to modern image editing giving me the chance to have a look at this wonderful, long lost vessel!
(I was eleven months "old" when this photo was taken... :-) )

Kind regards
