Life after Saint Line

Bombed & Lost at Basrah - 1980

About 200 ships of over 20 nations were caught in the Shatt-al-Arab when the 1980 war broke out.

Many ships, including the ex-St Rosario, now Maria Sofia,  were bombed and strafed and subsequently abandoned.

She is seen here in the Shatt-al-Arab
