PEARLEAF 1960: Blythswood, Scotstoun

Post by Deepol » Mon Oct 20, 2014 11:51 am

Amongst the attractive tankers built by the Blythswood yard was this one delivered in January 1960 to John I Jacobs but placed on long term charter to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.
She operated in this role till 1986 when she became NEJMAT EL PETROL XIX arriving on Gadani Beach on 7th March 1993 for scrapping.
