... i never could figure out why Bibby's included "MV" in the name ; so in actual fact, she's MV "MV Shropshire". What on earth were they thinking.....

I think that was a mistake by the Chinese shipyard. Notice she's also flying a Union Flag as a courtesy!
When first built she did have a British Master, back to back with a Russian, not sure how long he lasted as I did hear he basically didn't sleep at night when onboard due to the 'qualities' of his crew.
