This ship was built in England, launched in Jule of 1970 and entered service during March of 1971 as (a) Merkara. At that time she flew the flag of England. In 1975 she was renamed (b) Strathmeigle and she retained the English flag. In 1982 she was given her final name (c) Kannikar and re-registed in Thailand. The end came on September 10, 1987 though when she arrived in Huangpu, China. There she was subsequently broken up for scrap.
