I worked on SAG in 1985, their was a fire on board in Taiwan, I think it was Taiwan, 1 crew member and 2 local workers were killed. I believe the ship changed flag after the fire.

Yes your right about the fire onboard . I was second cook on board at the time along side in Kaohsiung . Basically what happend was the messman and a AB where fighting earlier on in the evening and in the earl hours of the morning the AB started a fire ouside the messmans cabin which quikly spread through the acommodation. One AB was killed along with two shore workers. A week later we saied for Singapore where all ratings were paid off and replaced by Chinese crew.
The AB who started the fire got 7 years (I think) in a Taiwan prison and when he was released committed suicide after his return to uk (Sunderland) I know this as it was on our local news and its just stuck in my mind ever since

Owned by Thornhope Shipping and managed by Denholms. She had Chinese crew when I was there
Thankfully we were on dry cargo all the time and didn't have the nightmare of changing over to oil cargo's

Denholms guys and any other here who live near Glasgow, note that you are all invited to the annual MN Memorial Day event at 1100 prompt in George Square, Glasgow on 3rd September. Tea and tabnabs after in the city chambers.
