Attacked on November 11, 1943 the " S.S. Cape San Juan " lost " 117 ? " U.S. Soldiers !

( One report notes that " 16 " soldiers were killed when the torpedo hit and another " 114 " soldiers drowned which is a total of " 130 ? " )

Below I've been able to identify a total of " 112 " of the original " 117 " U.S. Soldiers !

( I believe that the other 5 soldiers were recovered and are interred somewhere currently unknown )

The " S.S. Cape San Juan " actually didn't sink until the next day, November 12, 1944 !


     The steam passenger ship " S.S. Cape San Juan " was a conversion of a "small" dry cargo freighter known as a type C1-B.   According to the U.S. Merchant Marine site; " The C1 types were the smallest of the 3 original types designed by the United States Maritime Commission and were intended to be used on routes that did not call for fast ships. 173 were built between 1940 and 1945."

     On November 11, 1943 the unescorted " S.S. Cape San Juan " was enroute from from San Francisco, California to Townsville, Australia with a crew of 57 Merchant Mariners, 42 Navy Armed Guard, 3 radio operators, a permanant ship complement of 3 Army officers and 18 Army enlisted men, and 1,340 American soldiers aboard as passengers.   The Army Air Force passengers were all part of three different units as follows:

" 811 " members of the 855th Engineers (Aviation) Battalion
Note: The 855th was an entirely " Black Unit "

" 367 " members of the 1st Fighter Control Squadron

" 162 " members of the 253rd Ordnance (Aviation) Company

     They were hit by "one" torpedo fired by Japanese Submarine I-21 on the starboard side abreast of the after end of No. 2 hatch approximately 300 miles southeast of Fiji.   The ship immediately took on a hard starboard list.   An SOS was sent along with the message: " torpedoed, ship sinking fast ".   All " 57 " of the Merchant Mariners and all " 42 " of the Navy armed guards survived this attack!


     The following below list was created in the memory of those who "Gave Their All" on the " S.S. Cape San Juan ".   There are personal "online memorials" for each of these honored men that were created for them by using the "Find A Grave" website.   You will see a blue " Yes " behind their names and by clicking on the " Yes " you will see a personal memorial that has been created for them by myself or someone else.
