Built for AF Henry & MacGregor Ltd of Leith.  Sold by them to Robert McKinley of Glasgow in 1921, who in turn sold her on to Angus Campbell of Glasgow in 1927.

In 1949 she passed into the hands of Mac Shipping Co Ltd., Glasgow. In 1950 she was sold to the British Iron & Steel Corporation and allocated to Smith & Houston of Port Glasgow for demolition.

The photograph below is undated. nor is the location given. I suppose that all we can deduce from it is that she at least once carried a cargo of scrap metal.
