She was first based at Gibraltar and served as escort oiler on several Malta Convoys. During Operation Pedestal, together with RFA Brown Ranger, she fuelled one cruiser and 24 destroyers in 14 hours. Narrowly escaping damage during a severe air raid in Bône in December 1942, she survived to join the Pacific Fleet Train and was present for the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay. After the war she carried out routine freighting duties. She was decommissioned on 10 May 1959 and was laid up at Devonport.
