Tankers by Northwest Bridge & Iron Co.: Illustrations



S.S. Malay, ex S.S. Swiftwind in port after being torpedoed and shelled by U-123 off North Carolina on 19 January 1942. She was one of seven tankers ordered by the EFC but cancelled at a very early stage and completed privately. Their appearance and hull dimensions resemble those of the Design 1106 tankers built by the EFC for use by the Navy, but no direct evidence has been found that they were built to the same plans and their EFC design number has not been identified.
