On 30 June 1915, in the North Atlantic the Swedish ship OSCAR II was in colission with the British auxiliary cruiser PATUCA. The swedish ship sunk.
The captain on OSCAR II was D. Engelbrecht. How was the captain on PATUCA. Anyone know his name?
Thank sin advance.

HMS Patuca was not an RFA, of course, but appears to be a banana boat converted to an auxiliary cruiser. The ship and collision have been discussed on another forum and I see someone in Mexcico has the full story - see http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t27011.html
