SS Himalaya in Singapore

Loading...

Media TitleSS Himalaya in Singapore
Media NotesBy the time the Second World War ended in August 1945, the P&O Company had suffered terrible losses, the shipping group itself having lost 182 vessels totalling nearly 1,250,000 tons.

The rebuilding of the passenger fleet started in 1946, when P&O ordered their 28,047 gross ton liner "Himalaya" from Vickers Armstrong at Barrow-in-Furness. She cost £3.4 million.

In service, Himalaya only made 2 round trips to Australia before being programmed for cruises from Southampton, the first P&O cruises since 1939.
