I can confirm that both "Bonn" and "Borgsten" was in the "homefleet". Here some additional info (Source: Skipet 3/1986 and 4/1986 + LR)
She also grounded 20.03.1941 near Akerø in Oslofjord.
11.1960: It is correct that the vessel was sold to Maritime Trading, Tønsberg to be broken up, but instead she was renamed "MÅGERØ" and got a very long life. (If she was trading as "MÅGERØ" is unknown to me.
05.1961: Sold to Panamiam Oriental Steamship Corp (Wheelock, Marden & Co. Ltd., Hong Kong) Panama flag. Renamed "ANITA"
1966: Taken over by Government of Vietnam, Saigon.(Not registrated in LR)

LR reported "Anita" as stranded in 12.1991.
She sunk twice in WW2. 09.1941 collided near Langeland with a vessel that is unknown to me (maybe Flemming knows). 12.1943 near Bastøy,Horten as already mentioned in Your list.
