I've got something different for this one Henk...........

Built as the ROSEBANK by Clyde SB & Eng Co. Port Glasgow and launched on the 6th June 1906 for the John O'Groats SS Co Ltd. Wick. (Duncan and Jamieson.)

1912. Sold to Sigval Bergesen, Stavanger and renamed KROSFOND.

1914. Sold to Det Bergenske D/S and renamed KORA.

1946. Sold to P. Gasparinatos, Panama. Name unchanged.

16th July 1951. Wrecked 16 nm West of Sidi Barrani Lighthouse.
Refloated and broken up Spezia February 1952.

Quite posible she was damaged 1943 but she was repaired and carried on in the fleet until 1946.

Oops that means again homework! The problem is, I dont have registers between 1945 and 1961! So I must believe all other messages.
Again the library on friday!!!!!

Well you were right, she did join the fleet in 1914 and she was probably damaged in the war............

And she was broken up................eventually....... :lol: :lol:

But a long way from Norway.

Keep at it...........

Thanks for calling her first name Paul! I have found her in LR and could follow untill 1939. My friend Piet could trace her between 1947 and 1952. The only missing yet is her engine room! My LR of 1914 speeks about a Triple, but 1918 speeks about a Compound! Its a big differance, so I must make my way up to the library anyway I suppose!
In the meantime I have added all details to the ship.

1924 LR Has:-

T.3Cy. 15", 25" & 40" by 30" Stroke. (" inch)
104 NHP. Operating at 180 psi.

Same in the year of her loss.

So I think it more likly she had this engine from new.

So I think I might say that Compound is a misstake. I already have my minds when a Triple will be replaced by a Compound, but, yes, you never know!
Thanks anyway Paul, it was a missing link to me!
