Not that one either tomarse.
though you did have 3/4 of the nane in this sentance.
{would this vessel be a MoW and sailed under the white ensign ?} Thats a very good clue.
1) Ship built in the second decade of the 1900s
2) Had 6 name changes in her 31 years of service.
3) Had 2 nationalities for owners
4) Famous for what she did in the first 4 years of her life..
5) She had only one British owner
5) given under the treaty of Versailles
7) who went bananas with her. LOL
8) on the other side.
9) served in both world wars
10) though never made it through the second one.
11) sunk by aircraft of the RAF. But under one of her other names. (Not the name she was famous for)
Seems we are having a few problems solving this one.
12) She carried banana's when she was in British hands.

Well done Tom,
Rudolf Diesel.
:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
By 1912, there were more than 70,000 diesel engines working around the world, mostly in factories and generators. Eventually, Diesel’s engine would revolutionize the railroad industry; after World War II, trucks and buses also started using diesel-type engines that enabled them to carry heavy loads much more economically.
At the time of Diesel’s death, he was on his way to England to attend the groundbreaking of a new diesel-engine plant–and to meet with the British navy about installing his engine on their submarines. Conspiracy theories began to fly almost immediately: “Inventor Thrown Into the Sea to Stop Sale of Patents to British Government,” read one headline; another worried that Diesel was “Murdered by Agents from Big Oil Trusts.” It is likely that Diesel did throw himself overboard–as it turns out, he was nearly broke–but the mystery will probably never be solved.
