Merkator (4661 BRT) built in 1920 was a ship with the former names Angra and Maudi. She was handed over to russia on 04.09.1945.
Mercatur (4661 BRT) former finnish Mercator. This ship was a german prize on 19.09.1944 and given back to the finish owner after the war.
I wonder a little bit because both ships have almost the same name and the same size but very different fates. Is this just one ship ?
Can someone give me more details.
Thanks in advance
