PEISANDER 1967: Vickers Armstrongs, Newcasle

Post by Deepol » Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:29 am

She was the third of the Super Ps to enter service and the second from the Vickers Naval Yard at Walker-on-Tyne.
In March 1967 she loaded in Glasgow for her maiden voyage.
The late 1970s saw her sold to the CY Tung Group and renamed ORIENTAL EXPORTER finally going for scrap in 1986.
