Interesting reference to the earl Douglas in the attachment. Do you know anything about this vessel?

My shipping page:

No I do not , however in searching , I found at

Earl Douglas .(cargo, gt 272, built 1850, dead)

Earl of Douglas(cargo, built 1906, at Port Glasgow; tonnage: 4267)

Sarah E Douglas(schooner, 1888)

Empire Douglas(cargo, gt 1925, built 1944, dead)

Launched in 1943 as Wilhelmshaven for Hamburg America Line. Seized in May 1945 at Kiel. To MoWT and renamed Empire Douglas [Wiki]
