The 1906 Oriana was a Pacific SN Co liner. According to Duncan Haws "Merchant Fleets Vol 8" she stranded on Rathlin Island on 8.5.1918; the liners Aeneas and Manora as well as the escorting destroyers Martial and Nicator also went ashore. All were refloated within 2 weeks. No mention of Mystic.

Mystic was a destroyer, launched 20.6.1915 and sold for scrap in 1921.

There was also a destroyer Oriana launched 23.9.1916 and scrapped in 1921.
