For LST 1039 see []
Listed as converted to a "fish factory ship" under French flag as TINIAN and then, from 1961, IRATY. Last owner listed by Lloyd's Register was Cooperative Maritime Itsasokoa, Ciboure, France - but then deleted in 1991 as "continued existence in doubt"
Probably latterly used to support aquaculture (mussels?) in the Ciboure/St Jean de Luz area.

GALLUS ex-BOURNEMOUTH SKYLARK NO.4 was built by Tees-side Bridge & Engineering Co Ltd, Middlesbrough, UK, but I cannot find her original ID. In 1965 she was sold on to Italy and was operated from Castellammare di Stabia by Fratelli Savarese fu Antonino as POMPEI. Again, deleted from the registers in 1980 as existence in doubt.
