Question The Tiger

When I was on BP tankers in the 70s I used to frequently see an Esso tanker with the Esso Tiger painted on the fore end of the accomodation. Made that particular ship stand out a mile I can tell you.
Anyone know which ship that was? I believe it was a UK regestered one.
The tiger was virtually the full height of the accomodation, and must have been a real pain to paint, if it ever needed painting that is.
Any pictures of her on SN?
