Roebuck, Riverina and Ravenswood

The Roebuck (76) of Dee Navigation. She was one of three, Riverina (77) and Ravenswood (77) being the others. Roebuck is pictured at La Spezia and was sold and renamed South County (Cyprus). Ravenswood became South Faith (Liberia) and Riverina became Falkon (Sweden). All were 6802t and sold out of the Furness Withy fleet in 1982
Has anyone news of the fate of these ships?

Thanks for that. I have just found a pic of the Med Glory in a sinking condition in the Istanbul Straits after colliding with the Turkish ship Akaylar-2 in fog.
The Rabee-S was arrested for a few days in Netherlands over Officer's certification and charts etc not up to date. This was in 2000 when under the Cypriot flag.
The gross tonnage for these ships is less than built, possibly altered in some way?
