  1. In 1922 she was bought by USSR and in 1925 entered BLASCO service at the Black sea. Comissioned to Soviet Navy in April 1942. On August 30 1942 sunk by German torpedo boats S-28 and S-102 near Sochi. Wreck coordinates .43°44’N 39°29’E

    • Thanks very much for the information.

      Is BLASCO an acronym for Black Sea Company?

      Was she renamed while in Russian service?
