Launched in 1914, the S.S. Massilia (15,147 grt, 600 ft. long) started her service only in 1920. In 1940, she was requisitioned by the government for use as a troop transport. In June '40, she took 27 French politicians to North Africa where they intended to established a new government (the plan failed). In 1944, the Massilia was sunk as a blockship.
