I am looking for information on the fate of the 1936 built sisters Volta Palm (ex-Liberian) and Mendi Palm (ex-Leonian). They were sold in 1954 and 1959 and respectively renamed Hermes and Rio Yape.

Thanks in advance!

Just for love of precision: Vado is at outskirts of Savona, 50 Km west of Genoa, and not near Venice.
