I was S.O.S.aboard Salambria when the photo was taken in Adelaide.We tramped around the Pacific for 15 months before flying home from L.A.Changed days indeed.

Nice to see her looking rather smarter than when she arrived at Tanjung Priok in May 1990 under her final name HANG FAT, as posted by Brian Fisher.

Many thanks for posting a superb series of "proper ships" over the last few weeks.
