Hi Lyn
The Brookside was sold by the Goole shipbuilding company on Aug 13th 1928 to the Hughes shipping co who renamed her the Welsh rose .On 13th July 1928 there was an explosion on board her at the Newport docks the chief officer was trapped below decks,a policeman PC  Loveridge  risked his life trying to rescue him and extracted his lifeless body from the burning ship for which he got a commendation.I don't know the fate of the ship or if there was any body else on board at the time.
I will do some further research tomorrow.
Cheers Chris.

In February 1940 the Liverpool steamer Welsh Rose (581 tons gross) was machine gunned in 2 separate incidents (the second on Fri 9th) - no injuries to crew.

The last mention I can see is a sailing from Leith, arriving the Tyne 5 Sep 1946.

My father - also a William Parry had one voyage on a boat when he was about 15/16  - 1926 or so but I do not know which line he sailed with. He only told me that as he passed through the sound at Penmon,  he was so desperately homesick that he knew he would never be able to stand the life of a mariner.
