According to Polish sources WARTA was purchased by Polish Navy already in January 1924. Since March until May 1924 she was refited and then entered service as Polish Navy transport WARTA. She used to carry military supplies from France to Poland.
She was transferred from Polish Navy to Żegluga Polska on 20.04.1927. She was sold under Italian colours (to O. Rosini) in September 1933 and left Gdynia for the last time on 4.10.1933.
Reportedly during the WW2 she was seen in Atlantic convoys.
In 1952 she was laid up in Bary Docks until sold for BU.
