Ohrmazd in wartime colours 1971

Pakistani passenger/cargo ship "Ohrmazd" at anchor off Dubai in December 1971, in the colours adopted during the Indo-Pak War of that year (compare it to the photo submitted by Paul Strathdee in 2010, picture #14519). 7,963 tons gross; built 1968 by Burntisland S.B. (who had to pay so much in financial penalties incurred by the delay in her delivery that they went into liquidation afterwards) & owned by East & West Steamship Co., Karachi. She was broken up at Gadani Beach in 1994.
