I'm currently researching this ship for a Wikipedia article. Sources indicate she was a cargo ship, but one source claims she was used as a hospital ship in 1940, which could indicate a passenger ship / cargo liner.

Further details are:-
Built by Travewerk Gebroeders Goedhardt, Lübeck
Launched 1 Sept 1925

Riga - Lübeck Linie AG 1925-34
Köningsberg - Matthies Reederei 1934-39
Stettin - Matthies Reederei 1939-45
Empire Conway - Ministry of War Transport (R S Dalgliesh) 1945-46
Stettin - Soviet Government 1946
Anakriya - Soviet Government 1946-60 (removed from registers) / 78 (scrapped)

The latter two dates are of interest, did she serve as a hulk for 18 years?
