  • MV Dunedin Star was a UK refrigerated cargo liner. It was built by Cammell Laird and Co in 1935–36 as one of Blue Star Line's -class ships, designed to ship frozen meat from Australia and New Zealand to the United Kingdom. It served in the Second World War and is distinguished for its role in Operation Halberd to relieve the siege of Malta in September 1941. Dunedin Star was lost at the end of November 1942 when it ran aground in the South Atlantic on the Skeleton Coast of South West Africa. A complex sea, air, and land operation overcame many setbacks and rescued all of its passengers, crew, and gunners. An aircraft, a tug and two of the tug's crew were lost in rescue attempts. It took a month for the last of Dunedin Star's crew to reach Cape Town, and more than two months for the last of the rescuers to return. (en)
