War Dene was built in Newcastle in England and was launched in 1919. She was sold to Norway soon after and renamed Ramfoss, followed by Tyrifjord in the late 1930s when she sailed for the Norwegian company Den Norske Amerikalinje AS.  She sailed for Home fleet during second world war and was attacked by British airplanes 19.September 1944 at Stavenes in the Sunnfjord. Heavily damaged she was taken in tow to Askvoll where she went down three days later. The remains of the steamer rest today standing on her keel on a depth of 25 to 36 meter west of Askvoll.
