MV Stanvac Calcutta
Posted by Patricia O'Neal on May 18, 2020, 2:47 pm
The tanker Stanvac Calcutta, sailing under a Panamanian flag, was shelled and sunk off the coast of Brazil by the German raider Stier on June 6, 1942. Fourteen merchant mariners and three Navy Armed Guards died during the attack. I have names for the 14 merchant mariners, but can't seem to locate names for any of the three AGs.
This site had the best overall information but, for some reason, this particular information was not included. I found the names of six wounded AGs on USMM.org but even there the names of the three dead AGs were not listed.
Any help would be appreciated.
