Ayrfield Shipwreck, Australia

The 260-feet (29-meter) 1,140-ton steam boat was built in the United Kingdom in 1911 and registered in Sydney a year later. After being bought by the Australian Commonwealth Government, the ship was used as a supply ship for American troops in the Pacific area during World War II. After the war, the ship served as a commercial vessel until 1972 when it was retired from service and was “buried” in Homebush Bay near Auburn, New South Wales.
