Isonzo was built as a tanker in Riva Trigoso in Italy in 1937 for Regia Marina, the Italian navy. Under a journey from Cagliari to La Maddelena in a convoy with the steamers Entella and Loredan,, she was attacked outside Sardinia by the British submarine HMS Safari10. April 1943. The submarine fired a total of ten torpedoes and sunk two of the ships in the convoy, while the third was beached and sunk later. Izonso went down in the deep after fifteen minutes with a loss of four men from her crew, and another eighteen missing. The wreck rest today on a depth of 39 to 57 meter.
