Thanks for calling me, all the way from Germany (hehehe), Volker my dear old friend, but I have just commented on another Bob's photograph >> bulker KRPAN (Yugoslav flag)

... and YES!!!
I certainly know MREŽNICA very well, another vessel under Yugoslav flag, owned by Jugoslavenska linijska plovidba (JUGOLINIJA) from Rijeka;

My very best regards to you Volker, and of course, to Bob, the photographer of this well documentary photograph!
