Remains of 1917 wreck of Norwegian cargo vessel, located 5 miles SE of Sunderland. She foundered following a torpedo attack en route from Newcastle-upon-Tyne for Cherbourg with coal. Constructed of steel in 1907, she was a steam-driven vessel; at the time of loss she was armed and sailing under the British flag, having been requisitioned by the British Shipping Controller under an agreement with the Norwegian authorities. However, vessels requisitioned under this agreement retained their original nationality.
