Viana and videna were no sisterships, they were built with the bridge amidships. Vitrea was the first one with her bridge on the aft-ship.

I have a query. Does anyone recognise the names of one of the following officers of Shell Tankers? Captain Aschmoneit and engineer (HWTK) Van der Waals. As far as I know these were sailing on the 'Vitrea' in the 1960s.
