Hello Alan
I know you have been searching fior the Ports of call for some time,and it is a hard task i must say!
Anyway here is a site (one which you may allready have seen) that has Ports of call for the Shipping Line and various Ships,possibly it may revive some of the Ports you are looking for!?
Just trying mate!

P&O Line - Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co. - P & O Line
These are just a few Ports done by Orsova in Sept/Oct 1961

Colombo, Aden, Port Suez, Port Said, Naples, Gibraltar

I see that you also Boxed a bit in your time,me too when on the Gold Mines in SA!

Hi Alan
dont know if this is any good but "Oronsay" March '63
Tilbury Riverside, Gibralter, Naples
Port Said Aden, Colombo, Bombay, Penang, Singapore, Freemantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Suva,
Honolulu, Vancover, San Francisco, Long Beach, Acupulco, Panama Canal, Kingston, Lisbon, and last but not least
Tilbury Riverside.
All in 2 months 10 days, dont know where you went for the other month and a half, possibly from the states back to Aus and then back again, the timing is roughly about right and that as such was the normal "Orient Line" route. ;)
