The correct name should be KRI TANJUNG PANDAN.
KRI is prefix for Indonesion Naval Ships.

According to Combat Ships 1987 passed to Indonesian Navy in 1981, Clarkson's Blue Funnel Line gives date as 1982.

Combat Ships also state she was not actually used but remained immobile at Tanjung Priok. However they list her pennant number in 1987 as 971, possiblya mistake or changed later in 1980's.

She was purchased in 1958 by Blue Funnel Line, originally intended to be named DARDANUS she became GUNUNG DJATI after a famous Javanese Missionary.
