collision with Activa, a 556 ton German cargo vessel, broke in two. Ltd., of Newcastle, renamed Forest Dale. No reference to damage to Clan Lamont. The vessel was given up for lost - it took 48 days to reach Colombo after the shaft sheered. So until I am able, if I am ever able, to clarify the history with precision, I must limit myself to saying simply that the shipyard, then the 'Ship Factory ultimately closed in 1988.
