I think this wreck is HONGKONG SURETY, a Taiwanese general cargo built in 1955, as Belgian LUKALA.
Here is the story, from the book 'Modern Shipping Disasters 1963-1987', by Norman Hooke :
"While en route from Singapore to Port-Moresby with a general cargo, the Taiwanese motor vessel HONGKONG SURETY was wrecked when she ran aground in the Sunda Strait on Angelica Shoal in lat. 0746'S, long. 12217'E, on February 19, 1977. After being struck on board the wreck for two weeks, the crew radioed for help on March 5 when the vessel began to list in heavy seas. The wrecked vessel was eventually abandoned on March 10."
Regards, Yvon.
