History

Kowloon Bridge on a Voyage from Seven Islands in Canada to Hunterston in the Clyde estuary, in heavy weather, she reported cracks in her deck in front of the bridge. She made for the protection of Bantry Bay where she remained until 22nd November when she continued her voyage to Scotland.

The weather deteriorated and she lost her rudder. Shortly after midnight on 23rd November the crew were taken off by R.A.F. helicopters and on the following day she was blown ashore on the Stags off Baltimore.
Before assistance could reach her, she broke her back and was lost
