Progress

         The steam tanker " S.S. Arthur Middleton " was built in 1942 by the Alabama Dry Dock & Shipbuilding Co, Mobile AL for the Lykes Bros SS Co Inc, New Orleans LA .   The ship was named after Arthur Middleton signer of the United States Declaration of Independence.

         On January 1, 1943 the " Middleton " was part of convoy " UGS-3 " which was enroute from New York City, New York to Oran, Algeria with a cargo of 6412 tons of general cargo, including munition and explosives and a landing craft as deck cargo.

         They were hit by two torpedos fired by German Submarine U-73 that struck the " Middleton's " bow as the convey lined up in single file to enter the harbor at Oran.

         The torpedos exploded after 17 seconds.   They had ignited portions of the cargo and sent water, hull plates, parts of the ship and flames 1000 feet into the air.   The Liberty ship disintegrated from the #5 hatch to the bow, only the after part of the ship remained afloat for less than one minute three miles off Oran.

Out of the " 81 " on board,
which included " 8 " officers, " 34 " crewmen,
" 27 " U.S. Navy armed guards, and " 12 " passengers ...
only " 3 " U.S. Navy armed guards survived !

" 78 " lost their lives !
