Think you have your facts wrong. I sailed on her and took her to scrap still named Auckland Star.

Thanks for the correction! On re-checking I see that it was the Australia Star (1965) that became the "Cortina" & was also the one chartered to the Norwegians. So the last 2 sentences of my original text should be ignored, except for the scrapping date which I believe is correct. Apologies for my mistake!
