SS Worthing as HMS Brigadier during World War II
The Worthing became part of the British Expeditionary Force to France, receiving her orders to be in Southampton on 8 September 1939 and sailing to Southampton two days later. She became a troop carrier, crossing the English Channel to Cherbourg six times. The Worthing sailed for the Navy until 23 March 1945.
After the Second World War the Worthing resumed civilian service as a Newhaven-Dieppe ferry: first for the Southern Railway until 1948 and then for British Railways until 1954. In 1955 she was sold and moved to Greece, where she was renamed the Phryni.
