HMS Engadine (1941)

HMS Engadine was a 9,909 ton cargo ship laid down at Dumbarton, Scotland on March 16 1940, launched on May 26 1941 and completed on November 17 1941. She was originally built for the Clan Line, and named Clan Bucanan (the previous Clan Buchanan having been sunk by the German raider Pinguin on April 28). However she was taken over by the Royal Navy before completion and renamed in honour of the first HMS Engadine for use as an aircraft transporter. She was loaned to the US Navy from November 1942 until July 1943. At the end of the war, she was sold back to the Clan Line in 1946 and reverted to her original name. The ship was eventually scrapped at Cartagena, Spain in November 1962.
