Panamanian tanker 'Kuland' of 1962

Panamanian steam-turbine oil tanker "Kuland" (52,224 deadweight tons, built by Cammell Laird & Co., Birkenhead), owned by Kulan (sic) Corp., Panama. She was completed in March 1962 as "Otina" for Shell Tankers (U.K.) Ltd., London, & bought by Kulan (which I think was a subsidiary of Safmarine) in 1967. She was sold for scrap at Kaohsiung in September 1975, when this photo was taken.

I've looked for years for a photo of the Kuland. I was a Junior Engineer on the Kuland in 1971 - 1972. I was also on the SA Pioneer prior to that and have some great memories. Both were SafMarine ships.

I too was a junior engineer on the Kuland, on my first trip, left Cape Town and sailed to Stavanger, Norway. Next tanker was as 4th engineer on the Thorland when she was wrecked due to a tank cleaning operation.
