In 1924 she was bought by the Dundee Perth & London Shipping Co Ltd., of Dundee,and then over the next 54 years she was with a succession of owners on the NE coast of England. She is understood to have been scrapped in 1978, which would have meant that she had been in service for no less than a staggering 89 years.
