She was part of the Malta Campaign 1942-41 part of convoys and but also made solo runs. She survived.  Glen Line lost three ships in WW2.  Breckonshire one of the ships that was also on the Malta run had a heroic end after the Battle of  Sirte Gulf, and was finally sunk at Malta after four hits from a German Ju 88.  Breckonshire was raised in 1957 taken in tow, upside down to Triest and scrapped there.
Denbighshire served with the pacific fleet in 1945, returned to commercial service in 1947. She was sold as scrap in 1969 after 28 years of service which was the longest of any Glen Ship.
