Consulich Societa Triestina di Navigazione traced its ancestry back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but eventually became part of Italia in 1937. During the 1930s the company built a series of distinctive motor ships, two of which were Neptunia (shown in this photograph) and her sister Oceania. Both were employed on their owners Trieste – La Plata service. Both were converted into troopships. On 18 September 1941 they were in a troop convoy, with Saturnia (another former Consulich liner) escorted by five Italian destroyers, when both were torpedoed and sunk by the Malta based British submarine HMS Upholder.
HMS Upholder (Lt.Cdr. M.D. Wanklyn, DSO, RN) torpedoed and sank the Italian troop transports Neptunia (19475 GRT, built 1932) and Oceania (19507 GRT, built 1933) some 70 nautical miles east-north-east of Tripoli, Libya in position 33°01'N, 14°49'E.
