Allen Tony26/06/2007Bravore. Built by Kockums Mekaniska Verkstads A/B, Malmö, Sweden in 1916. She had the previous names Belibrook, Polberg and Bergvik. Departed Tyne in the evening of April 20th 1940 in convoy for Rouen with a cargo of 1991 tons coal. According to "Nortraships flåte" she had a crew of 19 and 5 French soldiers.

At the mouth of the Thames on the 22nd the convoy was split up, with some of the ships heading for London, while Bravore and 4 other vessels (2 of which were French, 1 British) continued to The Downs. Captain Tjørve became the first Nortraship captain to die when Bravore struck an aerial mine about 4 nautical miles off Ramsgate.
