So another Q ship ? Glencoyle built as a collier of 1680 tons gross in 1913,and seemingly lost the day after sinking U88 in the Atlantic around 8 Sept 1917.
Only one file at Kew for this ship (ADM53/61436),for Aug 1917,and I would think that the Sept one is sitting sodden on a sea floor as we write.
If you can discover where it was built there may be an archive for that builder,there are a few around with such old pictures.Lloyd's List,in any good Reference Library, for 1914 will probably have the details.
Got it now-North Ireland Shipbuilding Co.Londonderry. No archive as far as I can see as the yard was sold on a copule of times before it closed.
