My mother and brother sailed to Liverpool from Malta on this ship in 1944. Mum was a Maltese war bride, married to a British soldier. She said it was a long trip as the ship sailed close to the African coast, keeping away from submarines, etc.

My mother was a Lt. in the QARMNS in WW2 and served as a nursing sister on board M.S Oranje bringing wounded troops from Italy back to the UK.. She was called Kitty Irvine and talked fondly of her time on board this vessel despite the horrors of that war.
