HISTORY -- For 37 years the SS Canberra was a very familiar sight in Southampton's Western Docks and in ports the world over, particularly Sydney which, it could be said, has been her second home.

During the three months of the Falklands campaign she made headlines the world over, and she became a household name as she continued her peacetime role.

HISTORY -- P&O has a long and proud history stretching right back to 1815 when "a young man with no influence and but limited pecuniary means, opened an office in Lime Street, London and commenced business." The young man was Brodie McGhie Willcox and he was joined in his new endeavour, as ship broker and agent, by Arthur Anderson, employed by him as a Clerk. Willcox and Anderson soon became partners and with the financial backing of a Dublin ship owner, Captain Richard Bourne, the "Peninsular Steam Navigation Company" issued its first prospectus in 1835. The rest, as they say, is history and in 2012 the company celebrated 175 years of P&O's history.
