USS Tjisondari. Tjisondari, a 8039 gross ton (17,350 tons displacement) freighter, was built at Flushing, The Netherlands, in 1915 for a Dutch firm based in the East Indies. In March 1918 she was seized at Cavite in the Philippines by the United States Government under the right of angary, which allowed a belligerant power to use the property of a neutral nation if necessary, subject to full indemnification. The Navy took the ship over and commissioned her as USS Tjisondari (ID # 2783) in April 1918. She arrived in early May at San Francisco, where she was fitted for Navy service. There Tjisondari loaded a cargo of general Army supplies which was delivered at New York in June. In July the freighter sailed on the first of two round trip voyages to St. Nazaire, France, returning to New York from the second in late October. She was then fitted with stalls for 721 horses and made a third round-trip voyage to western France between November 1918 and January 1919. In February Tjisondari loaded a cargo of flour for the U.S. Shipping Board and in March delivered it at Copenhagen, Denmark. In April the ship loaded a cargo of case oil at Norfolk for the Shipping Board, which she delivered at Manila in July. USS Tjisondari was decommissioned at Manila in August 1919 and returned to her owners. Following another two decades of commercial operation S.S. Tjisondari was scrapped in 1939.
