CAPITAN MAYORAL was owned by the Spanish Army (not Navy)and manned by civilian crew.
Her task were to transport goods (mainly ammunition and explosives)from Spainīs mainland to Canary Islands and North Africa garrisons.
She was scrapped many years ago.

Thanks Werner for this information, from the photo on the web-site,I can see that it's the same vessel.Too bad the pages are in Spanish,but if I understand it correct,the vessel was still trading in 1974-74.
Again thanks a lot,Werner.
Best wishes from

the only thing I maybe can help You, is, that Your listing is right and the ship was still trading in the 1970's between the Islas Canarias and Rio d'Ifni, the former spanish colony on the African coast. She played a role transporting spanish supplies and also Franco-soldiers (Mamerto Sanchez)to Africa. See another picture of the ship and some more informations :
Later the ship disappeared - sorry, I have no more informations
Nice Regards from the Danube
