FORAFRIC one of 3 ‘ AFRIC ‘ suffixes, the others being SOLAFRIC and DUNAFRIC – all a departure from the normal ERIC endings..

The three vessels mentioned above were built for the EAST ASIATIC COMPANY in 1909, and changed hands a few times before the Weir purchase in 1927. FORAFRIC was owned by a HK company from 1935 and was bombed and sunk in the Philippines in 1941.
