King Arthur (5)

Holed after Striking The Bank of River Congo - 1961

While proceeding up river towards the port of Matadi, King Arthur was swept onto the Northern bank of the river by the very strong currents.

Holed in the fore part she proceeded slowly to the nearest dry-dock, in Cape Town.

The passage to Cape Town took eight days and she spent a further two weeks there being repaired.
