The 1966-built, 2,233-dwt, heavy load carrier, National Generation is seen in this photograph while she was underway in March of 1991. The location of the photograph is unknown.

She was built in England for James Fisher & Sons Public Ltd. Co. as Aberthaw Fisher and she sailed as such until 1990. At that time they renamed her National Generation for two years before re-applying her original name Aberthaw Fisher in 1992 once again. In April of 1996 she was sold to Benguela Operators (Pty) Ltd., Namibia, reflagged to South Africa and renamed Moonstar. The Fairplay Internet Ship Register listed the ship as a diamond mining vessel. On December 21st, 2000 she arrived in India where she was later boken up for scrap.
