That's the wrong PATRIA... the PATRIA sunk by terrorist action was this one:

The PATRIA depicted here belonged to the Portuguese company Companhia Colonial de Navegação and was built after the war.

All the best from Lisbon,

No Das Imperator, the Patria I was thinking of is the one depicted above, although I seem to have booped it by getting the details wrong somewhere along the line. I accept Paolo's and eddyw's details.(Scribe)
