Braat 11

REF NR: 617

March 7th 1918 saw the Norwegian steamship Braatt II (1834 tons), having sailed from Newport Montreal, steaming through the English Channel - 7 miles south-west of St Catherine’s Point. With a full cargo of coal bound for Rouen, she was suddenly hit by a torpedo from the German Submarine UB-30 (Wilhelm Rhein). Luckily the crew of 21 were all picked up by the passing converted trawler HMT Willonyx. Finally the Braatt II went down and now lays upright in 38 Mts of water.
