Almost identical to her sister Gwalia (Later Lady Moyra and Brighton Queen), she had a similar career. Originally sailing in the Bristol Channel she later sailed on the South Coast for Campbells, sailing from Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings across the English Channel to Boulogne and Calais. In 1933 she returned to the Bristol Channel on the Swansea to Ilfracombe run. Devonia was not used in 1939 but sailed to Dunkirk in 1940, where she was beached and did not return. Her sister (then Brighton Queen) was also lost in the Dunkirk evacuations.
