Orient Line's Orsova was built by John Brown & Co., of Glasgow.
Launched in 1908, she made her maiden voyage from London to Melbourne,
Sydney and Brisbane, via Suez, on 25 June 1909.
She was converted into a troop transport in 1915. In 1917, while still
serving as a trooper, she was torpedoed and badly damaged near
Eddystone, with six deaths. She was beached and repaired, survived the
War, and re-entered Orient Line's Australian service in 1919.
Orsova was scrapped in 1936.
