Amstelland (II)

Post by Jos Telleman » Sun Nov 18, 2018 8:49 pm

steam cargo ship Amstelland (II)

I try to translate the history to English
On the way in ballast in convoy from Falmouth via the Clyde to Buenos Aires, under captain C.S.Th. Rietbergen, during a German air attack (Focke Wulf aircraft) in the Irish Sea (54.12 NN, 16.00 WL) very badly damaged. They tried to bring the ship to an English harbor under the guidance of the British destroyer HMS 'Vanquisher', but it sank on February 28 as still in the southern exit of the Irish Sea. This involved a person who died. source Marishdata
