MS Sunoil (L)
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Patricia O
Description: MS Sunoil, an American motor tanker, left New York on Mar 27, 1943 with 102,000 barrels of fuel oil. Bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia and Scotland, the ship was part of Convoy HX-231. By Apr 5th, after leaving Halifax, the tanker had developed engine problems and was forced to fall back (straggle) from the convoy. On the 5th, German submarine U-563 spotted the zigzagging Sunoil and fired three torpedoes, one of which hit. The Armed Guards on board forced the u-boat to submerge, and a distress signal was heard by British ship HMS Vidette who came forward and averted another attack. Later that day, u-530 spied the tanker and fired a spread of three torpedoes. One hit and the ship stopped. After being hit by two more torpedoes, the ship sank quickly. A destroyer in the vicinity searched without success before returning to the convoy.There were 43 Merchant Mariners and 26 US Navy Armed Guards on board; none survived.
