Does anyone know how long it would have taken to travel by sea from Malta to London in June 1937 and where any cargo/passenger ships would have docked in London. I know that the ship (Alba Julia)left Malta on 29th June 1937, stopped near Vesuvius and then Marseilles - but would like to know how long the journey would have taken from Malta to London. Thanks

Hi! It is a simple calculation. As per Miramar Shipindex "ALBA JULIA" (ex CARL LEGIEN) had a maximum speed of 10,5 knots. Weather allowing calculated with 9 knots maximum speed and no loading/discharing port between Malta and London. 9 knots per hour x 24 hours a day = daily distance = 216 nautical miles per day. Distance Malta to London 2.313 nautical miles ./. 216 nm/day = 10,7 days. Roundabout 11 days minimum sea transit time. Depending on discharge/loading ports you should caldulate with three to four weeks min. travelling time. Sorry, but no information re. London berth of "ALBA JULIA" available.
Regards Peter
