U-Boat Attack in North Atlantic
The Transport, Henry R Mallory was torpedoed by U-402 while en convoy from New York to Iceland. The ship was struck by one torpedo. Although it was believed the ship would say afloat for some time, the ship started to list and sink suddenly by the stern. Four of the lifeboats capsized and some of the rafts could not be unsecured in time. ... Many were lost due to exposure to the cold during the four hour wait for rescue ships to arrive.
