Once a ship had been built and launched she then had to be out-fitted, and then complete sea trials
before being handed over to her new owners, who would look to have that ship at sea, as long as possible to
pay for her build costs and of course to make the company good profits.
To this end one company may have had no requirement for a particular ship after a time and would then sell her
on just like any other disposable commodity.
Hence a ship may have had a few owners and would go through many changes and names during what was
hoped for a long and successful working life.
The BRAVO was the third ship in the huge order secured by the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb, to help re-supply the Ellerman Wilson Line post war fleet.
