History

USS Ingraham (Cdr. W.M Haynsworth, Jr.) sank after a violent collision with the Navy oil tanker USS Chemung in 'pea-soup fog' off the coast of Nova Scotia in position 4234'N, 6005'W. The Ingraham was part of Task Force 37 escorting Convoy AT-20 to the United Kingdom. An internal explosion caused the ship to blaze from stem to stern. It was all over in a flash, the burning wreck vanishing beneath the waves taking the lives of 219 of her crew. There were only 11 survivors, 2 officers and 9 ratings all rescued by the Chemung's boat crews.
