Had quite an eventful career, as can be seen in the view she has suffered some sort of damage that occurred when she was caught in the Arab/Israeli war and declared constructive total loss. She passed in to Greek hands who repaired her and got another 10 years from her before on-selling to MSC. The sellers must have known something as she had one of the briefest careers with the Swiss-Italian concern, scrapped within six months although at the time there were only a few old style freighters left with the company as focus shifted to more container-friendly tonnage. Malcolm Cranfield was fortunate to get a nice shot of her during this time.

I noted a comment in the posting also from PF Kerr that the Yamashiro Maru was also involved in an incident off London that had a consipracy theory tag, she struck an East German vessel carrying Leyland buses when new in 1963, bound for the political hot-spot of Cuba.

That may be a casualty, but man, beautiful lines.
