To Clyde Steamship Co.

The Iroquois and Shawnee (6,209 grt, 409 ft. long) both entered service in 1927.
For a brief history of the Iroquois see this page.

The Algonquin, Mohawk, Seminole and Cherokee (5,897 grt, 402 ft. long) were all built in 1925-26.
The Mohawk was sunk in 1935 following a collision with a freighter off New Jersey,
while the Cherokee, serving as a troop transport, was torpedoed and sunk in 1942.
Both the Seminole and Algonquin were hospital ships during WW2 and survived to be scrapped during the 1950s.
