     The S.S. Paul Hamilton (Hull Number 227) was a Liberty ship built in the United States during World War II.   She was named after Paul Hamilton, the third United States Secretary of the Navy.

     On her fifth voyage the S.S. Paul Hamilton left Virginia as part of convoy UGS 38.   They were carrying supplies and the ground personnel of the 485th Bombardment Group of the United States Army Air Forces to Italy.   On April 20, 1944, while off the coast of Cape Bengut near Algiers, Convoy UGS 38 was attacked by 23 German Ju 88 bombers.

     The result of the attacked was the Paul Hamilton being hit by one aerial torpedo which struck and detonated the cargo of high explosives and bombs, and the ship and crew disappeared within 30 seconds.   The crew and passengers, who included 154 officers and men of the 831st Bombardment Squadron and 317 officers and men of the 32nd Photo Reconnaissance Squadron, and many others were all lost.

The total lost was " 580 " men !
