I have been trying to find the fate of the following to vessel (unsuccessfully obviously) and would be grateful for any information or pointers:

HMS Camellia (K31) Flower class corvette - Sold privately 1946 & r/n Hetty W Vinkle

HMS Spey (K246?) River class frigate - Sold 1948 to the Egyptian Navy & r/n Rashid

Thanks in advance

HMS Camellia

Sorry I don't know her fate but hopefully the following may be of interest.

HMS Camellia Built by Harland and Wolff Belfast. Yard number 1064 launched 4th May 1940 delivered 18th June 1940 724 tons. I'll dig about my records to see if I can uncover anything further.
