From a website dedicated to listing the undersea location of ship wrecks (called Wrecksite) is the breif history of the ship whose name was stamped in this book:
"Completed in July 1907 as British Abonema for Elder Dempster Lines Ltd, Liverpool. 1920 renamed Sapele for the same owner. 1929 sold to Argentina and renamed San Jorge for Weigel Bohnen & Cia SA Ltda, Buenos Aires. 1934 renamed Santa Catharina for Cia Argentina de Navegación Mihanovich Ltda, Buenos Aires. 1940 sold to Italy and renamed Sirio for La Estrella SA, Panama. 1941 taken over by Canada and renamed Kitty´s Brook.
The Canadian steamship Kitty´s Brook SS was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine on May 9th, 1942, about 450 miles out from New York on a voyage to Argentia, N.F.L. Nine of her crew were killed."
It Seems this poor ship made it to 38 before being felled by a German (presumably) U-boat. Sad for the 9 men lost on her, when she was only carrying wood pulp or paper products, hardly a good "kill" during wartime.
