Jon, thanks for the Wikipedia reference. If you go to the page for Klipfontein, it has a picture of her sinking.
Klipfontein is a Noordzee
Bloemfontein Castle is from Carlo Marquardt
"On 8 January 1953, Bloemfontein Castle rescued 234 passengers and crew from the Holland Afrika liner Klipfontein which was sinking after hitting a sunken German U-boat off Mozambique. Captain J. A. Fergurson and his senior officers later received commemorative gifts from the Holland Afrika Line."
