Stentor

She was a 6,626 grt motor cargo ship that was sunk on 27 October 1942 by a torpedo fired by German submarine U-509 at position 29° 13’ N, 20° 53’ W. The ship was hit on the starboard side at the bulkhead between holds #2 and #3. The palm oil stored in the deep tank was thrown up by the explosion and immediately caught fire, pouring into the passengers accommodation and setting the forward holds and bridge on fire. The men on the bridge were either killed or badly burned and had to be assisted to reach their lifeboat stations, but the ship suddenly sank by the bow about 8 minutes after being hit and the boat carrying the injured master capsized, drowning almost all occupants. Three lifeboats had been destroyed or were on fire, so the survivors abandoned ship in the remaining four boats and rafts. The master, the Vice Commodore, 19 crew members, one naval staff member and 22 passengers, including three army personnel and four nurses were lost. The ship’s surgeon William Chisholm was posthumously awarded the Albert Medal. He attended to the badly injured Vice Commodore and deliberately sacrificed his chance of safety by remaining with him until the ship sank. There were a lot of passengers on board when she was attacked. There were 202 survivors picked up by HMS Woodruff but 44 lives were lost.
