SS Alamar: Merchant freighter

The Alamar departed from Philadelphia and joined up with the 35 ship convoy PQ-16 at Reykjavik, Iceland. This particular convoy with its 50 ship escorts left Reykjavik on May 21, 1942 and was estimated to arrive a Murmansk, Russia on May 30th.

The Alamar was hit by a 'direct' bomb....and things went down hill from there, and her crew didn't fare out all that well even after being rescued.

Pictures and data on incident attached.
