Inver Tankers Ltd

INVER TANKERS LTD is a remarkable and sad story. There were seven tankers ironically built in German yards in 1938. They were, Inverlee,Invershannon,Inverliffey,Inverdargle,Inverlane,Inversuir,and Inverilen. All of the above tankers were lost to submarines or mines in WW2, many with a terrible loss of life.
