Asperity and Snow Crete (Warren Grove)

Hi gentlemen
Can anyone help me , I am looking for a photo of either of these two vessels which at one time belonged to FW Everards The Asperity I was looking for was built at Greenock in 1929 and was sank by a torpedo from the German E Boat S.64 in 53.11N - 07.07E on passage London to Hull in ballast on 29.11. 1941... The other vessel was the Warren Grove ex Snow Crete built at Hepples South Shields in 1921.. She was lost off Montrose on 9.11.1948 . I would like to stress this is for a private project done for no personal or financial gain .. Many thanks

"Asperity" (1929): Not even KS Garrett for his WSS History of Everards seems to have been able to source a photo for this vessel. He does have a photo of "Snowcrete" (1921) but this is not available on the web. She was one of a group of identical ships by Hepples. Photo of one of these here: http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk/S-Sh...levan1921.html
"Snowcrete" only in Everards ownership 1936-37.

There is a new edition of Ken Garret's book on Everards out now, there may be more info there perhaps ?

This vessel is shown in the wreck report of Asperity sunk in 1941. Is it the one you seek ?
