by a fire that also spread to the Passenger steamship LEONARDO DA VINCI
of the same company ITALIA DI NAVIGAZIONE, moored alongside.DA RECCO

Hugh - I just came across your post and thought you might be interested in what I have found in Lloyd's.
Ben Wyvis, built in 1945 as Empire Byng at Greenock, was renamed Peter Dal II in 1951, then became the Ben Wyvis in 1955 until, as you rightly point out she was sold to the Bacong Shipping Co. Panama and renamed Southern Comet (not Southern Comfort, you might be thinking of the drink?). She was sold again in 1968 and renamed Marites (Peoples Bank and Trust Co. Panama) and finally broken up in March 1972 in Hong Kong.
