Interesting 1968 Belgian built , they were four sisters:MONTAIGLE- MONTENAKEN-MONTFORT and MONTSALVA, she became KOTA BENAR in 1986 and few time later was scrapped.

A curiosity indeed. – Certainly not the usual haunt of a CMB ship, but in passing she was fixed (by me working on behalf of Compagnie Maritime Belge) on the 10th September 1976 to Kuwait Steamship Copany, for a timecharter trip starting at Bremen and via the UK to thence out to the then “Persian Gulf”, at the princely rate of US Dollars 4,825 per day plus USD1,500 overtime; so it is possible she was on that timecharter and it might explain her unusal visit to the Clyde. - I wonder if you have a note of the month?
