HISTORY -- MV Strathardle was a cargo ship of 12,552 dwt built by Mitsui Zosen, Tamano in 1967 for the P&O service from the UK to the Far East. She and her two sister vessels "Strathbrora" and "Strathconan" were known as the "Super Straths" as part of the promotional campaign for the new vessels. These vessels were later moved to the Company's service from the Persian Gulf to Japan but in 1979, "Strathardle" was sold to Thai owners and renamed "Anchan." She traded as such until 1986 when she was sold to Chinese shipbreakers at Huangpu. This is a publicity shot taken from a set of drinks coasters.

Passengers disembarked at Alexandria, and journeyed for 12 hours up the Nile to Cairo. Special shallow-draft vessels then carried them to Cosseir and passengers then travelled in mule drawn carriages to Port Suez.

COLLECTION OF LAST VOYAGE CHINA FROM THE LINER SS CANBERRA

ITEM PRICE REDUCED
{was £25 - now £19}


DESCRIPTION
-- Small collection of china pieces from the last ever voyage of the old vessel the SS Canberra and consists of a ship's Cup & Saucer and a Side Plate. All of the items are Royal Porcelain pieces and are all bottom marked and are all original items as the design was patented to The SS Canberra only.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- P&O commissioned the Canberra to operate the combined P&O-Orient Line service between the United Kingdom and Australia. The arrival of the jet airliner had already caused a drop in demand for this service; a reduction in emigration to Australia and wars forcing the closure of the Suez Canal saw the route become unprofitable. However a refit in 1974 saw the Canberra adapted to cruising. Unusually, this transition from an early life as a purpose built ocean liner to a long and successful career in cruising, occurred without any major external alterations, and with only minimal internal and mechanical changes over the years.
