|Notes on event|
After the convoy PQ-17 was dispersed on 4 July 1942 the Daniel Morgan (Master George T. Sullivan) traveled with four other ships to Archangel. On 5 July, they were attacked many times by German Ju 88 aircraft of the KG 30. About 18.00 hours, five Ju 88 from the III./KG 30 attacked the ship at 75°08N/44°10E and three near misses caused the #4 and #5 holds to flood and the ship to list to starboard.
The earlier ship of the master George T. Sullivan was the City of New York, which had been sunk by U-160 (Lassen) on 29 March 1942.
