British cargo ship 'Jumna' of 1962

London-registered general cargo ship "Jumna" (9,890 tons gross, built 1962 at Charles Connell & Co's Scotstoun yard, Glasgow), owned by Hain-Nourse Ltd., at anchor off Singapore in June 1972. Her original owner was James Nourse Ltd., who amalgamated (within the P&O Group) with Hain Steamship Co. in 1965 to form Hain-Nourse. In 1971 she came under the management of P&O General Cargo Division & in 1972 under the direct ownership of P&O S.N. Co.; in 1975 she was renamed "Strathnaver". In 1977 she was sold to Proteas Maritime Inc. of Singapore & renamed "Singapore Progress". In 1979 she became the "Delta"; in 1980 the "Family Delta" (Alfa Maritime Co. S.A. of Greece, manager Antonios Catsogeorgis); and in 1985 was scrapped at Alang, India

I've a nice trials photo of her in the attractive Nourse colours. She changed names from Jumna to Strathnaver in Glasgow. I'll see if I can dig out that photo.

Hope you can find it, Paul - I can't remember what the old Nourse colour scheme was. According to the P&O Archives she was the first P&O GCD ship to be renamed in the "Strath" system, on 20th March 1975

The Nourse funnel was yellow with a black top and a red diamond border with a narrow black band below. The trials photo I don't think would be allowed as it's not mine as such but I'll look for the renaming photo.
