Ordered by South Metropolitan Gas Company, London
20/5/1926 launched as GEORGE LIVESEY (also at some point during construction PARTNERSHIP III was intended name)
6/1926 completed, but contract apparently cancelled and vessel remained with the shipbuilder, unregistered

(SMGC built a new GEORGE LIVESEY at Lytham in 1928)
