Additional Details

The twin-screw ship was launched in 1908 and made her maiden voyage the following year. She was seized by the United States in 1917 and was converted to a troop ship. She was transferred to the Cosulich Line in 1923. She changed hands one last time before burning in 1934 and was subsequently scrapped.
