Scorcher -R&K., and LOF., were related hence the same funnel colours. Basil mavroleon worked for them when he first came to London. Think they were cousins. The 'PROCYON' had a sister which I cannot remember the name of , but, she became a 'KAVO' ship when sold to Gourdomichalis . Coiuld have been 'KAVO MATAPAS'.
