MS Wichita (L)
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Patricia O
Description: MS Wichita, an American motor merchant, left Takoradi (now part of Ghana) on Sep 1, 1942. The unescorted ship was hauling general cargo and was enroute to St Thomas, Virgin Islands and then New York. German submarine U-516 spied the freighter about 300 miles northeast of Barbados and fired a spread of two torpedoes; both missed. Wichita began zigzagging at 11.5 knots but was hit between the forward mast and the bridge and sank in less than a minute. No lifeboats or survivors were sighted by the Germans.There were 40 Merchant Mariners and 10 US Navy Armed Guards on board, none survived.
