The SS Matra was the only one of the three sister ships namely Matra, Mahseer and Manaar that I never sailed on. The sequence of three images shown in this 1960's album were taken as she was returning to the UK after loading in Colombo in 1964. Not only were her holds full but she was also carrying a large amount of deck cargo of (I think) Copra on the numbers three, four and five holds. I apologise for the poor quality of these images because of camera shake and the ravages of mould.
