Lovely painting Brian. Early WW2, she went missing in 1944 on passage Ardrossan - Lisbon with coal with the loss of all eleven hands. Steel built at Amlwh in 1893 as a barquentine and employed as a slate carry outside Home Trade routes.

Forgot to add that she was fitted with two oil engines driving twin screws, and classed in 1925 as an 'auxiliary twin screw 3 masted barquentine' registered still at Beaumaris but owned by Richard T. Hall, Arklow and he was also the master.
