Tony,

Slight mix-up with your history, I'm afraid.
The former WAR TANK was completed at Southwick (Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson) 10-1918
Subsequent career: 1919 MARZOCCO - 1926 TRIPOLITANIA - BU Vado 2.62 [ARDEM]

The vessel you show was her predecessor.
Also completed at Southwick (R. Thompson) 4-1897 as DRUMGARTH
Career: 1907 LORD CROMER - 1911 TRIPOLITANIA - wrecked near Porthleven 26.12.12 [Genoa-Barry, ballast]

Thank you for pointing it out I should have realised a ship built in 1919 could not have run a ground in 1912. Replaced the photo.
