SS War Camp at Sea
The SS War Camp was one of nine merchant ships built by J. Coughlan & Sons in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Seen here after its completion in September 1918, the War Camp was an example of the largest size of steel ships built in Canada for the Imperial Munitions Board (IMB). These and other IMB vessels carried the standard prefix "War." After the Armistice, the War Camp sailed for another 40 years under various names before finally being scrapped in Osaka, Japan, in 1958.
