Launched in 1952, the SS Uganda was one of the last ocean-going liners to be built in the old tradition of style and elegance. Her brass fittings and teak decks gleamed as she sedately made her way along the East Africa run for the British India Steam
By the end of the 1960s the great era of sea travel was long over and the SS Uganda began a new life as a school ship on cruises around the Mediterranean.
Perhaps her finest hour came in 1982 when she was requisitioned by the Ministry of Defence to serve as a hospital ship in the Falklands conflict.
Ivan Howlett traces the history of the SS Uganda by starting with a visit to Cornwall and the empty hulk lying at anchor in the quiet River Fal.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
