HMS Lucia

The Ship

Sold for Scrap 1951

Lucia was built in 1907 as the Hamburg-Amerika liner Spreewald and was captured in September 1914. She was converted to a submarine depot ship in 1916 on the Clyde and served in the First World War on the River Tees. It would seem from other correspondence that she was given the nickname of 'Lucifer' by her crews. In the Second World War she served in the East, mainly at Colombo, being badly damaged there in April 1942 by Japanese aircraft. She was sold in 1946 and finally broken up in 1951.
