Disposition DateComments
195712/2 - Lost, after striking submerged object, at 19.25 N, 86.15 E, 175 miles NE of Vizagapatam, on voyage Odessa to Calcutta with cargo of metals. Her crew was saved. A British Court dealing with a case rising out of an insurance claim for her loss found she had been a victim of a barratry rather than an accident.
