Thanks. Interesting about the MOULAY BOUCHAIB is also the total rebuilding in Toulon during 1949 and fitted with a Weser-MAN diesel engine built 1937. Unrecognizable as a former Flower class corvette for most of us. 999 grt. 549 nrt. 1035 dwt.
As far as I know only 32 former Flower class corvettes were fitted with a diesel engine. 15 cargo vessels (1 later a fishing vessel), 1 passenger ferry, 1 buoy tender and 15 whale catchers.
