PLUMLEAF launched at Blyth on 29/03/1960 according to Miramar. However, Miramar also says that she was launched as the CORHEATH, which she certainly wasn't.

CORHEATH was the name allocated to her by Cory when they ordered her but between then and her launch she was chartered to RFA and was renamed PLUMLEAF.
