In 1893 France's fondness for subsidising her industry was again evidenced by an Act passed that year which enabled her merchant marine to greatly undercut foreign competition. The resulting growth of large vessels to take advantage of this was no surprise and the Jacqueline is a typical "bounty ship" as they became known. Built for A.D. Bordes and measuring 322ft long with a 45ft beam, she was registered at 3,017 tonnes. Except for an incident in the Bristol Channel, her career was uneventful until July 1917 when enroute for La Pallice, the British steamer Victoria warned her of U-boats in the area. As a fog came down, one was indeed spotted closing in. The following morning Victoria could see no sign of Jacqueline and after the War it was confirmed that U-101 had torpedoed her with the loss of all hands.
