GLALA

PREVIOUS NAMES AND OWNERS

Lloyds Register of Yachts was published annually but there is uncertainty about some of the dates because changes of ownership can appear in it quite late. There is also some inconsistency between editions, vessel number 144471 is listed in the 1914 edition but later editions list her as built in 1915, and then she is listed as completed in 1920.

Lloyds Register was not published 1915-1918 and 1939-1945.
