Arrived Australia May 1925 for Charles T McGlew of Port adelaide. December 1925 of the Yorke Peninsula Barley producers Ltd, and registered Melbourne. 1926 Peninsula Traders Ltd.

These concerns were dissatisfied with Adelaide Steamship Co's service, in a situation where the shipment of their barley caused them to import this vessel for their immediate puposes. All good until the season was complete then found uneconomical to run.

In an agreement in 1926, was sold to the Adelaide Steamship Co, where a vessel of similiar standing was always to be made available at the height of the barley shipping season. Sold for scrapping 1953
