Why don't you just read "Summary of Statements by survivors of SS Almeria Lykes;" a report written by Ensign E D Henderson, USNR, in charge of the Armed Guard aboard her during the battle, for USN Department. OP-15-B-5 from the National Archives. They have been declassified and available from at least the 1960's. A tad more accurate than Wikepdia and the like methinks, if not so fashionable.
