    I cannot quite make the date out Brian was that February 1964? 360 people was that bringing the ship alongside or ferrying by ships lifeboats? Job well done by the looks of it.

    Reminds me of the Tristan De Cuna incident around the same time.
    Cape Town Castle picked them up and took them into Cape Town.
