SS Huntsgreen was originally a German ship called the DERFLINGER. After her maiden voyage, she was used on the Bremen - Suez - Far East service until 1914 when she was captured by the British at Port Said. Renamed HUNTSGREEN and operated as a troopship, she was re-sold to NGL in 1923 and rebuilt to 9162 gross tons, with accommodation for 290 2nd class and 521 3rd class passengers.

She resumed Bremen - New York sailings on the 20th of September 1923, and later Bremen - Halifax - Gaveston voyages. Her last Bremen - Halifax - Gaveston sailing was on the 3rd of May 1028 and she subsequently returned to the Far East service until 1932 when she was scrapped at Bremerhaven.
