While in Elder Dempsters I sailed on Kohima and Kentung, same class as Kaduna, Kohima and Kentung had 4 stroke engines. While working for Bahrain Slipway in 1970's I was called to the Regent Reliance, at anchor 5 miles off Bahrain, to see if it was possible to carry out a repair on a scotch boiler. The Lloyds surveyor and myself found a furnace in the boiler had a large bulge in it, probably caused by using muddy river water as feed and not blowing down. By chance Bahrain Slipway had a piece of boiler quality steel and from this we were able to make a cylinder section, after much testing of the steel and welders to Lloyds satisfaction. To get the furnace section into the location of the boiler front, a hole was cut in the bulkhead of deep tank/engine room, the boiler front being only about 4 or 5 feet from this bulkhead. The damged section of furnace was cropped out. The furnace section that we had manufactured was floated in using the ships derricks and welded into the the the gap left by the damged section all to the satisfaction of the Lloyds surveyor. The boiler was hydaulicly tested, then steem raised and the vessel was able to continue her voyage.

an excellent photograph - as Graham confirms, REGENT RELIANCE was owned in the Maldives. She bore the same colours, for example, as MALDIVE TRUST:

REGENT LIBERTY (ex Kumba) was similarly owned in the Maldives from 1973 to 1980

No. I think that the colours were those of Maldive Shipping, or a related company
