The Collingwood was Devitt and Moore's first venture into the Melbourne wool trade. She was one of the early Aberdeen-built iron clippers and throughly looked her part. You could not wear out those early iron ships, and although she made no remarkable voyages, she sailed regularly and rarely missed the Australian wool sales.

Later, while sailing under Norwegian colors, she was sunk by a German submarine on March 12, 1917. After 45 years of faithful service, the Collingwood was sent beneath the waves, earning her a spot on the "Ships' Roll of Honor in the Great War."

In this image, talented artist Efren Erese features this distinguished ship as she sits at anchor in earlier days.
