Has she the Canadian funnel mark on her? (Most sorry and my excuses for being an ignorant European with bad knowledge of Canadian ships in wartime...)

It's Burns Philp Shipping Company, a famous Australian company, although at the time of her sinking she was registered in Hong Kong. As said above, she was sunk by Japanese air attack on 19 February 1942 whilst carrying explosives. 45 died and many more were injured.

She has the appearance of a German built ship, i.e. funnels closely spaced and yards crossing her masts, among other features. Always thought Burns Philp funnel livery looked special.
