On 13 August 1942, the American Merchant Marine ship SS DELMUNDO was torpedoed by the German U-600 and sank in the Windward Passage, near Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Captain Henry Peter "Harry" Smith was the Master. He died two days later from injuries sustained during the attack.
The reason I am posting this very interesting event on this blog is the amount of info that is entailed in the history of this event.  If you are looking into 'info' about a family member that was maybe a Merchant Seaman or US Navy guy...this might be something you would want to take a look at.  After all many times at least I have found, info is buried in other ship histories events.
