37 years ago, Helsingør Shipyard had an order for three ships to Iraq. Officially, the merchant ships, but not many at the shipyard or those involved in making the decision on the order could not know that the ships was for troop transport. It was not permitted under Danish law, when Iraq was at war against Iran, but the politicians allowed the task to be performed at the yard, for it provided plenty of work, and the staff at Helsingør Shipyard did not feel it was their responsibility to decide what kind of ships they were to build.
