very fond memories of SS "CHUSAN"

The beautiful P & O liner SS "CHUSAN" was built in 1950, another product of VICKERS ARMSTRONGS in Furness, she was named after a Chinese Island and was said to have brought new standards of luxury to the India and the Far East route, CHUSAN was 24.200 GRT and had a top speed of 23.5 knots. I have very fond memories of this vessel when in 1972, still just a very young boy I assisted this amazing liner docking in Lisbon on board my uncle´s tug where he was the master, this is how I used to spend my summer holidays. CHUSAN  was withdrawn from service in 1973 and scrapped in Taiwan. Postcards in this post sent by Antonio Silva
