On 13 April, she departed Brixham bound for Barcelona, Spain,[1] with an ultimate destination of Valencia.[2] She was not heard from again, and no trace was found of her until 21 June when SS Courier found a damaged lifeboat 1 nautical mile (1.9 km) south east of Lower Head, near the Russell Channel Buoy. The lifeboat was landed at Guernsey. Captain Fierens and his crew of 16 were all lost with the ship.[1]
