    12/1918: Rederi A/B Transatlantic (G. Carlsson) Gøteborg, Sverige - TISNAREN
    5/1942: Torpedert og senket 18/5 av Italiensk ubåt CAPPELLINI i det Karibiske hav.

    Commisioned by Rederiaktiebolaget Transatlantic (RABT) and launched 27 Jul 1918 at Götaverken Shipyard in Gothenburg, Sweden she measured 9450 dwt, 133m X 17m X 8m and was capable of making 12 knots. She was the second in line of Transatlantics new breed of Diesel boats, all named after lakes in Sweden.

    Six years later on 12 Aug 1924, off the Portuguese Coast she collided with the Spanish steamer Urumea carrying copper pyrites. The Urumea sank on the spot but Tisnaren managed to limp in to Lisbon with #3 cargo hold flooded. In 1938 she was almost lost to fire when her cargo of copra, the highly flammable white inside of cocoa nuts self-ignited and she needed to be flooded at the dock to put the fire out
