CAP FINISTERRE (Hamburg Sud Amerika)

Pasenger liner built in 1911 by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg, as Cap Finisterre for the Hamburg-Sud Amerika company. She was laid up at Hamburg throughout WW1. Surrendered to the US Government in 1919 and then transferred to the British and managed by the Orient Line. In 1920 she was transferred to Japan as war reparations and in 1921 renamed Taiyo Maru for Toyo Kisen KK. Her owners became part of Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK Line) in 1926. From 1941 she was used for Pacific patrol duties by the Japanese navy. Sunk 8/5/1942 by the American submarine Grenadier.
