U-Boat Attack in North Atlantic
After straggling away from its convoy, Angelina was struck by a torpedo from U-618. The ship listed to starboard and settled. A second torpedo struck about 20 minutes later. At the time the crew abandoned ship, a very heavy sea was running. Lifeboat number 2 capsized leaving a few men to cling to the side of Angelina's overturned hull.
