Allen Tony08/11/2013The British ship Ardeola SS (Yeoward Line) a passenger/cargo streamer was picked out by a searchlight at Bizerta on November 9th, 1942, and ordered to stop. She was boarded by a French naval party and taken into Bizerta. The crew were sent to a camp at Sfax, but left there with other ships´ crews on November 24th for Algiers. The ship´s name was changed to Aderno SS and she left Bizerta in January, 1943, with an Italian crew. She was torpedoed and sunk by a British submarine HMS Torbay on the 23rd July, 1943, about 2 miles from Civitavecchia, West Italy.
Engines were built by the Lilybank Foundry, UK.
