PETROBUS

PETROBUS

A 475 ton steam coastal tanker built for the Admiralty by Dunlop, Bremner & Co. Ltd., Port Glasgow and launched on 8 November 1917.
I have no further information on her except that she was broken up at Grays by T.W. Ward beginning 24 February 1959
Any input of information would be much appreciated.

The old fella was in a sister to this one during the war, PETRONEL. I recall him telling me that he didn't mind it much as he was close to home for a change, but that those up top had delusions of grandeur so he was glad to pay off and head back deepsea again.
After this one he was in FORT CONNOLLY (one of the Canadian Forts) and Far East/Burma bound for the invasion of the latter.
