This photo is named as 'ENGLAND from SHWR Wear' was sent to me by Clive Ketley from an original by George Scott.

If so then she was their yard no 1415 from 1930 although I would have put her 20 years earlier than that myself.

Think Clive is probably right, she has an enclosed bridge behind the open section, and can't really see another to fit .... photo comparison shows she is not the 1921 from Livingston & Cooper, Hessle as THORHILD then ENGLAND 1923-1928.
Another of the period was Japanese built which seems unlikely for this one.
Cheers, George

Yes Dave, I'm inclined to agree with George.

The 1906 England, built by Northumberland Shipbuilding was lost in 1917 and was 3,798 Gross and if George has ruled out the 1921 one that really only leaves us this one.

She has a Well Deck so that fits the description.
Poop 19ft
Raised Quarter Deck 93ft
Bridge 55ft.
Forecastle 28ft
Dim. 283.8ft x 42.0ft by 17.8ft (Depth)
Keel laid 11th July 1929.
Launched 17th December 1929.
Trials 31st January 1930.
Owner H A Christensen, Amaliegade 43, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Funnel. Black with a White 'CA' Monogram.

Unfortunatly she was lost by submarine torpedo on the 27th January 1940 on a voyage from Copenhagen to Blyth in Ballast.
So she was not in Talbot Booth's 1940 Book.
Paul Hood. + WSS Tyneside Branch Hon Sec.
