RMS MOOLTAN - 1952
THE SHIP OF A THOUSAND ROMANCES
Mooltan was built and launched in 1923 at the famous Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Along with her identical sister 'Maloja', Mooltan worked P&O's Tilbury-Sydney service and proved immensely popular during the jazz age, earning a reputation for steadiness in rough seas. Mooltan went on to serve during the Second World War before returning to civilian service, carrying thousands of immigrants to Australia from Britain. Finally, after a thirty-year career, the mighty Mooltan was scrapped in Scotland.
