Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Steve.
I can't find a STARSTONE on Miramar that was lost but one of the two listed was around at the time - http://www.miramarshipindex.org.nz/ship/list
I'm sure someone in the crew will be able to help better.
Enjoy the voyage.

Steve, the steamer STARSTONE was completed in August 1938 by Doxford, Sunderland for the Alva SS Co Ltd, Navigation & Coal Trade Co Ltd (mgrs), London. 5702grt. On the 31st October 1940 she was bombed by German aircraft west of Ireland in 54.12N 15.32W. (ref HMSO Records). She survived the war and was later registered in the ownership of Alvada Shg Co Ltd, London. Broken up at Nagoya in early 1963. Jim.
