She had a very short career under the Great War, and was sunk the year after in the Mediterranean. She was hit by two torpedoes from the German uboat UC-22 under command of Oberleutnant zur see Heino Von Heimburg 19.Juni 1917 outside Tunisia. Only eight men from the crew survived the sinking. The wreck was located in September 2020 standing on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 50 meter outside Cap Bon.
