Built by Ross & Marshall at their yard in Greenock for their own fleet. IN 1920 she came into the ownership of Wm J Garscadden of Glasgow. In 1911 she was sold on to the Wansborough Paper Coy of Watchet, Somerset to whose mills she ferried bulk coal from Barry Glamorgan for the next 40 years

It is in this post-Clyde life that she was photographed below at Watchet in Somerset.
