MS Louisiana
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Patricia O
Description: On Aug. 17, 1942, MS Louisiana, an American merchant ship (tanker), with 92.5 barrels of gasoline, was enroute to Rio de Janeiro. The unescorted ship was hit forward of the bridge by a torpedo from German U-boat 108. Louisiana increased speed, U-108 surfaced and gave chase, and Louisiana fired its stern gun at the sub while sending distress signals. A Norwegian merchant ship approached but, not understanding Louisiana's signals, passed between the tanker and the sub. Later, a plane flew over and dropped a bomb but U-108 submerged and the bomb missed. Around midnight, two torpedoes were fired, both hit and the tanker sank bow first, completely consumed in flames. There were 41 Merchant Mariners and 8 Naval Armed Guards on board, none survived.
