A very good foto. Much better than the previous I have come across of the SJW.

Does anybody know what happened to her

Hi- I worked for Stephenson Clarke in 1974-5 as Office Junior then Agency Clerk, and both the Charles H Merz and Sir Johnstone Wright were sold after being laid up at Newcastle Quayside while I was there. One was renamed the Fanis- both went to Greek buyers. I remember they were none too happy because a lot of the items that could be used on other sister CEGB vessels (eg bedding and crockery plus deck and engine spares) were allegedly removed, allegedly between sale and handover- we could not find out the truth of it,but suffice to say Stephenson Clarke were not paid the agency fees due from the new owners!.

Broken up in Aspropyrgos, Greece in late 83 as the FANIS.
