Oronsay152 viewsA familiar site to many of us waving farewell to friends & loved ones at the quayside in Singapore Docks ("Godown 44" rings a bell as the jetty for liners, anybody remember?) This is the Oronsay in March/April 1967, which was en-route from New Zealand to the U.K. I cannot remember why there was a film crew on the dockside.

The number of bottles on the table explain the quality of the photo.
