An oddity for a tanker company

Not what you would expect to find in a tanker owner's fleet

Wooden hulled, twin screw refrigerated fish carrier for operation between Abadan and Muscat.

KUSA (1950 - 1952)
O.N. 184263. 92g. 26n 76.9 x 18.3 x 9.0 feet.
Two, 8-cyl. 4 S.C.S.A. (5"x 7") oil engines manufactured by L. Gardner & Sons Ltd., Manchester.
8.1950: Completed by J. A. Silver Ltd., Roseneath, Dumbarton, for the British Tanker Company Ltd.
2.9.1950: Departed Clyde bound in tow to Abadan.
1952: Seized by the Persian Authorities.
No further details located.

Would be interesting to hear from anyone who may have encountered her on their travels.
