Mediterranean shipping routes

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me the shipping route taken by P&O to transit the mediterranean in the 1950s? I am interested in knowing whether ships passed north or south of Malta when travelling from London to Suez. I travelled to Australia with my parents on Strathnaver in January 1958. Many thanks, Gary

Where are you from: Australia

I thought the navigation officers amongst us would've jumped all over this post but sadly not. I just Googled images for "Mediterranean Shipping Lanes" and couldn't find any map showing a main shipping lane south of Malta so I guess the answer is most likely north.

I think that map was drawn before P&O was thought of. lol.
