Vessels Lost in WW2 Recorded on the Memorial at Tower Hill

This page includes basic information about the ships and how they were lost, a photo of the relevant panel(s) of the Tower Hill Memorial and information about those that lost their lives extracted from the CWGC database. In the table I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as this seems appropriate to me. In some cases further family information about the individuals may be available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.

Kwangtung

She was a 2,626 GRT steam Passenger/ cargo ship that was sunk on 4 January 1942 by gunfire from Japanese submarine I-156 at position 09° 12' S, 111° 10' E. The submarine came to the surface and opened fire on the ship and sunk her and then fired at the four lifeboats at close range. She then rammed the Captain's boat and sank it. The Chief Officer's boat waited until the submarine had submerged and went in search of survivors and managed to pick up ten men. The submarine surfaced a second time and gave chase cutting the Chief Offier's boat in two but both parts remained afloat and the men were picked up the next day by a passing steamship and landed at Sourabaya.

The I-156 was commanded by Lt. Cdr. Katsui Ohashi and I have looked in vain for a record of his having been brought before a War Crimes tribunal as he surely should have been. It seems likely that he got away with his vile and murderous actions.

Laconia

She was a 19,680 GRT steam Passenger/ refrigerated cargo ship that was sunk on 12 September 1942 by torpedoes fired by German submarine U-156 at position 05° 05' S, 11° 38' W - off the coast of Liberia. The ship was in the service of the Ministry of War Transport at the time and being used as a troopship. At the time of her sinking she was carrying over 1,800 Italian prisoners of war. Overall 1,658 people died and there were 1,083 survivors. Many of the survivors were rescued by the U-boat. The story of Laconia is too complex to relate here but her sinking and the rescue by the U-boat led to the issue of the infamous "Laconia Order" which was a key part of the indictments at the Nuremburg War Crimes Tribunal. The Master of Laconia Rudolph Sharp had been Master of Lancastria when she was sunk - see entry HERE.
