ORIANA photographed from fleet mate CANBERRA


Bill Miller tells us: It was just before dinner.   The date:  October 1980.   I was aboard the Canberra, returning from a cruise to Southampton.   Almost without warning, her fleetmate Oriana swept past at rather high speed.  We were in the Bay of Biscay and it was the last meeting of the two great P&O liners in Northern waters.   The Oriana was heading for Australia, where she would be based full-time at Sydney for Pacific cruising.
