- SS City of Paris (1922)
The SS "City of Paris" was a steam passenger ship built in 1922 and that was requisitioned for service by the British government during the
Second World War.
16 September, whilst carrying 139 people, she struck a mine that had been laid by U-13 on 4 September. She was damaged, with one person being killed, but managed to make it to port for repairs. She was requisitioned shortly afterwards and from 1940 onwards she was used as a troopship. She was then converted into a personnel ship in 1944, and used as an accommodation ship from September 1945 until 1946. She was then briefly used again as a troopship before being returned to the Ellerman Lines. She was returned to commercial service in 1947 and scrapped in 1956.
