SS Uganda (Not)528 viewsIn 1973 this ship was used for Tal Handaq school trips to Greece etc. my girlfriend was on board at the time as I waited for her to come back (hence the picture). Apparently the girls were chased back to the ship in Greece because of their attire (hot pants and mini skirts).
