THE SS CHICKASAW CITY


This ole girl was coming out of Cape Town....with a cargo of Chrome Ore, some hides and coffee.....when she and a few other ships were being watched by the German Sub U-172....

The U-172 let loose with two torpedoes...that did in fact connect with the Chickasaw City...and damage was so extensive that this ole girl sank in under five minutes...but that is only the beginning of what this crew suffered....
