I seek information on the final fate of these three BSL ships:
Australia Star of 1965 which was last reported as sold in 1984 under the named Candy Ace.
Orwell Star, a small coaster operated in 1965-68 and then sold as Booker Trader.
Trojan Star, operated in 1976-80 and then sold as Chios Clipper. which is otherwhise excellent fails to mention their demise.
Any clues?

Hi Aristo, just came across your post.
As far as I can determine the Australia Star II was scrapped in China April 1985.
The little Orwell/OrwellStar/GuyTrader, I can find no trace. If afloat she would be almost 50yo, and even by the 'local ' standards of shipping in that part of the world, that is a long time sailing!!
Trojan Star II/ChiosClipper at 35yo is unlikley to be around. Can't find any record, although her sister..Tuscan Star which was renamed Chios Pride at around the same time also is u/k. The present day.. ..ChiosPride is a totally different ship.
