Thanks for this interesting picture closing a gap in my collection.
"Jupiter" was wrecked 29.04.49 off Goldamel en voyage St. Louis (Senegal) - Dakar.
Built as "Foremost III"?? I have either "Foremost" or "Foremost I", sources differ.

Official Number 135686 identifies her in the 1920 Mercantile Navy List as FOREMOST registered at Southampton in 1915 and register closed 1920 on sale foreign. The closed ship register is in file BT 110/308/30 at the National Archive at Kew.

135687 was FOREMOST II
135688 was FOREMOST III

Olá Kgvm and BillH
Thanks for your informations.
I worked in Booth Line agents at Oporto/Leixões, Messrs Garland, Laidley & Co., Ltd, Oporto, and old colleagues said that JUPITER was purchased by Booth Line in 1920, and transferred to its agents in Portugal in order together with MARS 2º assisting their ships at Leixões.
Best regards
