** Ship's log January to March 1975 (by Peter Thompson, England) - At that time she was under British flag (ON 358687) and was operated by Maritime Overseas Co Ltd of London, a subsidiary of Maritime Overseas Co., New York. I joined in Baltimore, U.S.A. and we took coal to Mizushima, Japan. We then loaded coke for Matanzas in Venezuela. In Matanzas the ship was re-flagged under the the Liberian flag and I went home. A couple of years later I saw her at anchor in Singapore.
