DICIDO

Launched on 1 December 1902 and completed during May 1903 by Craig, Taylor and Co. Ltd., Stockton-on-Tees for Trinidad SS Co. Ltd., London.
She was a triple expansion steamer of 1478 tons and a service speed of 11 knots. Her engine was built and supplied by North East Marine Engineering, Sunderland.
In 1912 she was sold to Rederi A/A Karnam, Helsingborg, Sweden with no change of name. She gained new Swedish owners in 1921 in the form of Sven Redig, Helsingborg and they operated her, still as Dicido, until 7 January 1940. On that day she ran aground at Tjoroneset while on voyage from Thameshaven to Helsingborg with a cargo of pyrites. The damage was so severe that she sank with no loss of life.

Stuart - Think that final voyage was from Thamshavn in Trondsheimfjord and not Thameshaven in the London River. Don't think they've ever heard of Pyrites there.
