SS Robin Moor Wed. May 21, 1941
Unarmed U.S. freighter Robin Moor, en route to South Africa and Mozambique, is stopped and sunk by German submarine U-69 (torpedo and gunfire) about 700 miles off the west coast of Africa, 0610'N, 2540'W. Robin Moor--her nationality prominently reflected in the U.S. flags painted on her sides--is the first American merchantman sunk by a U-boat in World War II. There are no casualties among her 38-man crew and eight passengers, and U-69'scommanding officer, Kapitanleutnant Jost Metzler, provides the Americans with rations.
