Events:
1946: Sold to States Marine Corp., renamed MAGNOLIA STATE.
1957: Sold to Bloomfield Steamship Co., renamed NEVA WEST.
1968: Sold to Crest Overseas Shipping Co., renamed ERICSON.
1973: This vessel was arrested under instructions from the Admiralty Marshal, Dacca early in 1973 following the India/Pakistan war, with the ship lying beached at Fouzdarhat, Chittagong, at which port she had been since February 1971 following a minor collision. In October 1973 she was sold at public auction and was acquired by Japanese interests, for scrapping. In June 1974 a tug arrived to tow the ship to Japan, but this was not permitted, the Bangladesh government not granting clearance. The ship therefore remained at Chittagong where she was eventually scrapped in February 1978.
