Pendennis Castle in Durban
One of the famous Union-Castle Line ships sailing between South Africa and the United Kingdom.  The 28,582grt ship was in service from the 1st January 1959-14th June 1976 when she was withdrawn along with most at the time.  She was sold to Ocean Queen Navigation Corporation of Panama and named Ocean Queen.  After four years of being laid up under various names and ownership, she was scrapped in 1980.

These pictures were taken in Durban at the end of 1975 when we were on holiday.  The first in the harbour and the second when she was sailing
