Under Second World War, the rumors say, she was used by the Royal Navy in convoys over the Mediterranean but this has not been verified. She survived the war, but under a journey to Yugoslavia loaded with aid material and supplies she hit a mine left over from the war and sank 13. February 1946 outside Plonim. The wreck rest today on a depth of 40 to 60 meter.
