Sinking on June 15, 1942 the " S.S. Cherokee " lost " 86 " men !

( " 3 " officers, " 62 " crewmen, " 1 " armed guard and " 20 " passengers lost their lives )

Accounted for below are all 65 Merchant Mariners, the 1 armed guard, however only " 2 " of the passengers are currently known !

     The steam passenger ship " S.S. Cherokee " was built and completed in 1925 by the Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company, Newport News, Virginia for the Clyde-Mallory Lines (Agwilines Inc.), New York and was a 5,896 ton ship.

     On June 15, 1942 the " S.S. Cherokee " was part of convoy XB-25 and was enroute from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Boston, Massachusetts with a cargo of 350 tons of sand ballast, 46 U.S. Army passengers and a crew of 123 ( 9 officers, 103 merchant mariners, and 11 U.S. Navy Armed Guards ).   They were hit by "two" torpedos fired by German Submarine U-87 northeast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

     The "first" torpedo stuck on the port side under the bridge.   The explosion lifted the vessel out of the water, destroyed the chart house and incoming water gave the ship a sharp list to port.   The "second" torpedo hit the port bow 90 seconds later, causing the ship to sink by the bow with a 60 degrees list to port within six minutes.   The rough seas and the extreme list prevented the launching of lifeboats and only seven rafts were cut loose.   Three officers, 62 crew men, one armed guard and 20 passengers died.

The ship Master/Captain of the S.S. Cherokee was:

who was one of the 39 survivors of the Cherokee's sinking !
