Not sure if this is the 1950 built one but at one point during her career she actually carried Blue Star Line funnel colours! I think she was under charter to them at the time. I do have a photo but, unfortunately, I don't think it would post.

Hi Peter,
I remember Blue Star having a coaster of similar tonnage. I think that she ran a feeder service of some kind. I can't remember if it was the "Sherborne" though.

Not very good quality but have just managed to post the photo of the 'Sherborne' wearing Blue Star funnel colours.

Jaap has the lot, once again. Sad to see Carters go out of business they had some attractive well maintained coasters and in the mid 1960s had the Philips built WIMBORNE, 368grt/1949 on charter to the Ministry of Defence to maintain the buoys and targets on the Aberporth missile range.
