Please, see two Spanish links relative to the M/V Monte Ayala shown in the above photography, as follows:

Este barco tuvo como nombre original "Ayala-Mendi". En 1937 se convirtió en el aleman "Elise" y en 1938 volvió a ser "Ayala-Mendi", para convertirse en "Monte Ayala" al acabar la Guerra Civil. Varios barcos de Aznar cambiaron de nombre y bandera durante la guerra para no ser atacados.

Translation

This Ship had the original name of “Ayala Mendi”. In 1937 she was the German ship “Elise” and in 1938 she was named again “Ayala – Mendi”, to be converted in “Monte Ayala” upon finishing the Civil War. Several Aznar’s ships changed their names and flag during the war to avoid any attack.

Kind Regards

Tomislav Raymondi.
