Laid down on 27 May 1968 at Lowestoft, England by Brooke Marine Ltd., this is where she ends her journey, at a breaking yard in Dadaepo, Busan.

I have deliberately put her name as "USS Brunswick", even as she was transferred to the South Korean navy and renamed Gwang Yang ATS-28, and she participated in the salvage of the "Cheonan" frigate, sunk by the North Koreans in 2010.

More on her career can be found here:

Unusual, yes, up to her very end, as Korea is not considered a typical ship breaking nation... :)

So, in an unusual, if not bizarre twist, the Brits were building ships for the US Navy back then ??
