Taken over by the Admiralty in August 1939 for war service as Anti-Submarine Trawler (FY 121). Tragedy struck on 5th January 1940 when the Trawler was in collision with the French liner S.S. Chella in the Gibraltar Strait and sank. One or more A/S Depth-Charges exploded in the sea and her Skipper and all seveteen crew-members lost their lives.
