Built by William Cramp & Son at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the Southern Pacific Company, Antilles was torpedoed and sunk on 17 October 1917, while operating as a troopship for the U.S. Army. At the time she was two days out from Quiberon Bay, France, en route to the U.S. Antilles reportedly sank in four and one-half minutes.
