|Tonnage:||16.297 tons (one of the largest ships sunk).|
|Date:||22 Dec 1942||Nationality: British|
|Notes:||At 06.34 hours on 22 December, the ship was damaged by a torpedo from a German Ju88 aircraft (III./KG 26) in convoy KMF-5 and not by the attack of U-565 at 01.24 hours on 21 December. The U-boat apparently missed the intended target, later heard a torpedo detonation and claimed a hit that is not confirmed by Allied sources.|
This vessel was removed from our ships attacked databases after further research the data more closely.
