Notes:
The source of the image has been lost, but it appears that this is one of few surviving images of GLENFOYLE. Built as a sister ship of GLENMAVIS in 1913, she went to sea in WWI. In 1917 she was taken up by the Royal Navy as a Q-Ship and renamed HMS STONECROP. She succeeded in sinking U-151 on 17 Sept. 1917 off the southwest coast of Ireland. The next day she was torpedoed and sunk by U-43.
