House flag of Cargos Bretons, two variants - Images by Ivan Sache, 24 September 2010
Compagnie des Cargos Bretons is incidentally mentioned in Jean- Michel Roche's Dictionnaire des bâtiments de la Flotte française de Colbert à nos jours. Tome II. 1876-1906. On 15 April 1920, the company purchased from the French Navy the patrol boat Ablette, which had served in 1917-1919, and renamed it Lieutenant Le Mounier.
