The West Tacock was one of the West ships, a series of steel-hulled cargo ships built on the West Coast of the United States for the World War One war effort. After the war she sailed for the Dixie Line until 1933, when she was one of 52 ships from the Dixie and Southern States Lines acquired by the Lykes Bros. Steamship Co. In 1940 she was sold to the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique — the French Line — and renamed Ile de Brehat. She was mined off Capri on November 2, 1944.
