Any ideas why shes`s not sporting Strick funnel colours, other than being on charter & if so to who? Sailed on sister ship Strathatlow ex Gorgistan.

Looking at the posting of Baluchistan Gingerbeer has made today, this one looks like
a different ship, and the name looks too short?

Agree with Brian this is not the same ship as Gingerbeer's.
Inclined to think this is the Baluchistan which eventually became the Strathairlie. If so what is the other one?

I would go for Farsistan, Gorjistan or Kohistan. Definitely one of those three, but not easy to determine which one.

Agree with Orbitaman, definitely the ' Gorjistan ', petty details plus positioning of the front end name says it
