I can confirm that the six-digit LR unique number of LONDRES was indeed 521143

If an "IMO-type number" is to be constructed from a 6-digit LR unique number it would be not be by adding a zero to the front, or adding a 5 as Miramar has in many cases, and certainly not by basing it on a made-up number to get "0552143". The ship's LR unique number was 521143 (not verified), which would have become 5211434 in 1969.
