Does anyone have any info/history/fate of the Chelwood
France Fenwick & Co

I am referring to the one built 1928. Info on her is very elusive considering she survived the war years.
160583 CHELWOOD 1928

Be obliged

In 1957 the "Chelwood" was sold to Panamanian owners and renamed "San Romeli" and in January 1960 arrived at Kaohsiung to be broken up.
