She was launched May 18 1903. She had her bad landfall October 3 1905, she was then loaded with petroleum for Samarang. Capitano Paolo Serra had command when she ran into a bad storm September 26, and after losing several men in the storm she finally went ashore on the Island Luzon, and quickly broke apart. What was left of the crew reached Samar. Regards, Stein.
