Hello
Could you give me more information about this steamship?
Thanks

LILLA

F.Degrossi; 1888; T.Turnbull & Son; 2819 tons; 289.2 x 38.3 x 20.8 ;
219 n.h.p. ; triple-expansion engines.
The Italian steamship LILLA was torpedoed and sunk by a submarine in the Mediterranean on October 13th, 1917.

The first name of this steamship probably was THORDISA, later change it's name to LILLA or LILLIA DUBILD.
probably it sunks near Cape Palos (Murcia)

Try this (http://www.miramarshipindex.org.nz/ship/show/185968).
Basic but confirms what you have already.
