There was of course an 'Earlier M.V.Defoe'. She Foundered off Rockall on 24th September 1942. Seven Men were lost, Including my father [Ships Carpenter, Arthur Wright M.N.] She was a fairly NEW Vessel on a voyage to Famagusta, Cyprus with a semi lethal cocktail of Aeroplane Varnish & Liquid Chlorine.
The Bow was blown off up to the foremast and her remains were eventually sunk as a menace to other shipping. Those who died are commemorated on the Tower Green M.N. Memorial.
