CIVIL USE

Sold to Greenwood Shipping Co of Liverpool in 1948 and renamed "Ann W".  In 1953 she was sold on to Zanzibar Transport Co Ltd. In their ownership she is reported to have capsized and sunk while entering Mombasa harbour in September 1955. Apparently salvaged and sold to R J Gadhavi of Zanzibar before being scrapped in 1962.

The photograph below shows her as "Ann W" on the Medway at Strood in 1951.
