Delphic II was constructed as War Icarus for the Shipping Controller in order to increase Britain's cargo carrying capacity. War Icarus was a Standard 'G' type, of which there were 22, 14 of which were fitted with twin screws. The White Star Line purchased three of these vessels after the war ended, War Argus, War Icarus, and War Priam, all, fitted with twin screws, which would become, Gallic II, Delphic II, and Bardic respectively.
Launched at Workman Clark & Company's Belfast yard in the November of 1918, with the Booth Line as managers.
In May, 1919, War Icarus was purcased by the Atlantic Transport Line, and renamed Mesaba.
In 1933, Delphic II was sold yet again, this time to Clan Line Steamers Ltd. for £53,000, and also underwent yet another change of name, to Clan Farquhar II, and still serving on the Australian route.
In July, 1948, Clan Farquhar II, was scrapped at Milford Haven.
