Thordisa was built by Thomas Turnbull & Son in Whitby, and was launched in 1888 for Thomas Turnbull & Son. She sailed for the same company until 1913, when she was sold to the Italian company Francesco Degresso in Genoa and renamed Lilla. Under a journey from England to Italy she fell victim to the most famous uboat captain of all time, Lothar von Arnauld de la Periere and his SM U 35 outside Cartagena 14. October 1917. The wreck rest today in two parts on a depth of 35 to 45 meter at Tomas Maestre. Also see the steamer Vilhelm Krag, another victim of SM U 35.
