1963Jane's Fighting Ships lists a transport named NAN HU (ex TAIHUI, ex STEELMOTOR) as discarded in 1963. There is no information explaining how she got from Ming Sung, a private Chinese company whose owners remained on the mainland in 1949 and put their company in Communist hands, transferring this vessel to the Republic of China Navy in Taiwan.

The information on this web site is the kind contribution of our Historian, Skip Lewis, 2003. Skip, whose dad sailed for Isthmian, is an avid collector and researcher of everything Isthmian and States Marine. In his quest, he has used many sources and publications including Lloyd's of London and Imperial Steel by John Atherton.
