Starting life in 1958 as Overseas Pioneer, a good looking tanker, at the Haverton Hill yard of Furness Shipbuilding she was converted to a bulk carrier in 1968 and renamed London Pioneer. Her owners London & Overseas Freighters carried out several such conversions over the years. Of 15,934 gr tons she is seen here at Immingham 31 May 1971.

Thanks for your interest Ben. She lost some of her looks on conversion but I'd settle for seeing a few like her around today.
