There were two Baron Forbes owned by H Hogarth & Co.  This is the first one which was built in 1915 in Hamburg for the Oldenburg Portuguese Line and it came to the UK in 1919 as war reparations.

The second Baron Forbes was built by Haugesund Mekaniske Verksted shipyard in Norway in 1967.  More details about it are available here.
