The ships interned in Turkey were sold "to repurchase" to the Turkish Government on November 8, 1943, but only the Elan was redeemed.
Marius Chambon >>> Bozcaada as tug anf salvage vessel, in 1965 remelted as a coaster as Kaptan Memeth late Egin H. According the website www.marine traffic.com, she is always active but I have a doubt because it was built in 1905.
Marseillais 3 >>> Galata, scrapped in 1964
Vaillante >>> Kaldiray, scrapped in 1975.
I have not indication for the others.
