I think yardnr. DEEMORE is 954.
Incorrect in L.R. Vol.IV directory 1957/58 and others.

Yes you must be right Jaap, the error in LR goes back a long way, I have the Shipbuilders supplement for 1934-1935 where she is shown as 974, but with BEEMORE 952, CEEMORE 953 then it must be wrong by any logic. However, numbers 973 and 975 were in use by 1931 and there is no other 974 shown except DEEMORE so what happened to the correct allocation of this number!!

Yes strange. According to LR steamship HILARY of 1931 has yardnr. 975 and GODFREY B.HOLT (later DORINTHIA) of 1929 nr. 954 indeed.
If that is correct I think nr. 974 for DEEMORE is also correct.

I had not noticed that 954, Jaap. So which way do we go? Possible I suppose that BEEMORE/CEEMORE were ordered as a pair and allocated 952/953 then if there was a delay in ordering DEEMORE, 954 had been used so it jumped to 974 as next available. So is Mr. Lloyd right after all?
