Hi all, in the recently published book of HDW by Oceanum Verlag is also stated, that she launched as passenger vessel Ostmark yard No. 902 on 17.01.1940 and completed as Yard No. 907 as Skaugum on 18.4.49, transfered to a bulk carrier on 18.09.1957 and broken up at Kaohsiung on 15.08.1972 (name Ocean Builder).

yes, Miramar states that SKAUGUM was built as a passenger ship at Kiel and launched in 1940 as OSTMARK but not completed until 1949 then converted into a bulk carrier in 1957; sold 1964 to become OCEAN BUILDER arrived Kaohsiung 25.8.72 to be broken up adds:

launched as the fast cargo liner OSTMARK for HAPAG, she was laid up incomplete through the War. In 1948 she was sold by the British Ministry of Transport to I.M.Skaugen, who had her rebuilt as an emigrant carrier by her builders in Kiel. Completed in April 1949 she entered service between Genoa and Australia, Messageries Maritimes acting as agents in Australia. With her sister ship SKAUBRYN she was also used for French trooping duties to Indo-China (Vietnam), in about 1954 repatriating to Marseilles French soldiers who had been prisoners of War, and also used to transport French troops during the Korean war
