If we try another Bandak - C/S LDZJ :-)
Built by Fredriksstad mek. verksted in 1893 (#28) as "Transport III". Renamed "Transport" the same year. Became "Grimstad" in 1897 and sailed as such to 1939. Then she became "Troll" until she sank in the Kattegat October 4th 1947. Raised January 22nd 1948 and became "Bandak" after repairs in 1948.
7 of 9 men of the Bandak's crew perished in the sinking February 19th, as they were unable to climb up the clifs on the spot she struck in foggy weather.
