The motor tanker Abida was built in 1958, part of A class 19,000 tons tankers, built in the Netherlands, for the transportation of crude oil from the Persian Gulf to the Rotterdam refinery. After 1960 there was a slight change of colours, the funnel being now red and the shell emblem yellow.
So here is the Abida as built
and here after 1960
The Abida served with Shell Tankers until 1985 when she was scrapped at Gadani Beach Pakistan.
Thank you Kim for the crest
