CHANGCHOW 1951: Scotts' Greenock

Post by Deepol » Thu Jul 31, 2014 9:01 am

Passenger/ cargo ship completed for the China Navigation Company but which had an unsuccesful career because of the political situations in Indonesia and other places at the time.
As a result she was sold to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary in 1953 and became RESURGENT fulfilling that role till May 1981 when she was scrapped at Gijon.
