HiKlaus: Thankyou,that explains it,I was to Kuala Lumpur in 1964 and didn't recall any spelling like that! It was a mystery,she anchored out in front with her stern facing the shore so I was quite surprised to read the name there.When she eventually swung round the bow lettering revealed her as Kuala Lumpur Express,mystery solved. Best regards from an Old Salt. Ken W.

hi Ken,

she belongs to Costamare of Greece and flies the Greek flag. What you have seen on her stern is her actual name in Greek letters.
