The MS East Indian....actually built and launched as a Japanese steam merchant as Beikoku Maru, and completed in 1918. Well to make a somewhat short intro to her history....she was converted in 1926 as a motor merchant.
She was still running strong in 1942....but then she met up with a German U-boat U-181 when all hell broke loose.
