Birth: 1914, Philippines
Death: Jul. 23, 1944
South Shields
Tyne and Wear, England

Pedro Lagorda (Z-195465) served in the US Merchant Marine service during World War Two. He was a fireman/water tender aboard the SS Cape Mohican, and survived an accident in the summer of 1943, when a convoy escort torpedoed the ship during a nighttime alarm. The ship was saved, and towed back to England for an extensive overhaul.

Lagorda was stabbed in the heart on July 23, 1944, outside 18 Bede Street near Tyne Docks, South Shields. He died from a combination of the wound, hemorrhaging, and shock.

He was buried in Cambridge American Cemetery on July 29. Lagorda left behind a wife, Mrs. Betty Lagorda, of Baltimore, MD.
