The Stella is mentioned in Lloyd's War Losses Vol. II. Between the 11-12th March 1941 the ship had been loading a cargo of steel billets at Manchester for Newport. The ship was sunk alongside at her berth after coming under attack by German aicraft. With her back broken she was not raised until November 1941 and sold to the British by her Swedish owners and after being repaired was put back in service under the name River Swift.
