Are you referring to the bulk carrier "Foreland"built by Van der Giessen in 1967? If so she was sold in 1979 and renamed "Asean Nations", in 1984 "Negotiator" and in 1990 "Youcheng". I have nothing further on her but if still afloat she would be getting on a bit.

Mightttttt be your lucky day. That said I need to find the photo. I sailed as Lecky on the M.V. Foreland in 1973. One 3 month trip only. As memory serves a 26000 GRt gearless bulker with ward leonard tension winches, 4 in all. Not meant to carry a lecky but who was placed in the 3rd mates cabin on the starboard side. The only ship I ever bunked on the starboard side.
Please be realy patient as I do have a, well its a post card but havn't seen it for some time. You can pester me on [email protected].
By the way, head office was Leadenhall street London, Yes?
